Multiscale modelling of fluid and drug transport in vascular tumours

Abstract:

Understanding the perfusion of blood and drugs in tumours is fundamental to foreseeing the efficacy of treatment regimes and predicting tumour growth. In particular, the dependence of these processes on the tumour vascular structure is poorly established. The objective of this thesis is to derive effective equations describing blood, and drug perfusion in vascular tumours, and specifically to determine the dependence of these on the tumour vascular structure. This dependence occurs through th...
