Modelling cell migration, proliferation and interactions on growing domains

Abstract:

Motile and proliferative cell populations in growing tissues are a common feature of mammalian embryonic development. The aim of the work presented in this thesis is to develop models that better describe the behaviour of motile and proliferative cell populations on growing domains. We motivate our study by investigating the behaviour of melanoblasts, a migratory and proliferative cell population responsible for fur pigmentation in the embryonic mouse. We then develop mathematical models t...
