Intercellular Communication Processes

Intercellular communication occurs via a variety of chemical and electrical pathways. With MOAC's interdisciplinary framework, experimental data can be used to inform mathematical models of communication processes, which in turn can be used to design further experiments. Using this cyclical approach, a more detailed understanding of these processes can be achieved than would be possible with the tools of a single discipline.

Current MOAC PhD student projects on intercellular communication can be found here:

Role of gap junctions in determining the connectivity and synchronicity of the myometrial smooth muscle network

Experimentally verified models of the neocortical microcircuit
