Abstract: From fertilization to birth, successful mammalian reproduction relies on interactions of elasticstructures with a fluid environment. Sperm flagella must move through cervical mucus to the uterus and intothe oviduct, where fertilization occurs. In fact, some sperm may adhere to oviductal epithelia, and must changetheir pattern of oscillation to escape. In addition, coordinated beating of oviductal cilia also drive the flow.Sperm-egg penetration, transport of the fertilized ovum from the oviduct to its implantation in the uterus and,indeed, birth itself are rich examples of elasto-hydrodynamic coupling. We will discuss successes andchallenges in the mathematical and computational modeling of the biofluids of reproduction.

Date&Time: November 25 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm KST


Abstract:

Simple mathematical models have had remarkable successes in biology, framing how we understand a host of mechanisms and processes. However, with the advent of a host of new experimental technologies, the last ten years has seen an explosion in the amount and types of quantitative data now being generated. This sets a new challenge for the field ? to develop, calibrate and analyse new models to interpret these data. In this talk I will use examples relating to intracellular transport and cell motility to showcase how quantitative comparisons between models and data can help tease apart subtle details of biological mechanisms.
