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.
