Biofluids 2021

RIMS Research Project “Mathematical Biofluid Mechanics”

Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Kyoto University

Kyoto, June-August 2021


As a part of applied mathematical studies, biofluid mechanics has gathered significant attention from various research communities such as physical and material sciences, engineering, biology and medicine. In particular, novel computational and theoretical techniques, mathematical models and methods are all required to understand complex motions in biological phenomena. In this research project, through a series of workshops, tutorial seminars and symposia, we enthusiastically explore newly-born research topics in collaboration with researchers with various research backgrounds to expand the horizons of fluid mechanics and applied mathematics, in addition to deepening the traditional research topics, aiming at cultivating national and international networks of related researchers.

All the Biofluid2021 Workshops have ended with great success. Many thanks to all the speakers and participants!!
