Project Profile

IGERT: MultiScale Transport in Environmental and Physiological Systems (MultiSTEPS)

Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University


Transport processes such as fluid motion in biological systems at cellular, organismal and environmental levels are a key aspect of such challenges as targeted drug delivery, preventing cancer cell metastasis, and controlling pathogen spread through the biosphere. The discovery, analysis, and solution of critical issues in biological transport requires a… more »
