Dr. Monica Hurdal (FSU Mathematics)
Organizational Meeting
Biomath Seminar
Time: 3:05pm
Location: LOV 200
 
Sep 8
Dr. Monica Hurdal (FSU Mathematics)
Mathematical Models of Human Brain Folding Pattern Formation & Characterization
Biomath Seminar
Time: 3:05pm
Location: LOV 200
In this presentation I will give an overview of my research involving cortical pattern formation and conformal flat maps of the human brain. I will discuss some of biological theories of cortical fold... More
 
Sep 15
Dr. Richard Bertram (FSU Mathematics)
Synchronization Properties of Scale-Free Networks of Pituitary Cells
Biomath Seminar
Time: 3:05pm
Location: LOV 200
Pituitary cells secrete hormones that regulate most functions of the body. Like neurons, they exhibit electrical activity, and it is this activity that regulates hormone secretion. In particular, burs... More

Mehran Fazli (FSU Mathematics)
Fast-Slow Analysis of a Stochastic Mechanism for Electrical Bursting
Biomath Seminar
Time: 3:05pm
Location: LOV 200
Electrical bursting oscillations in neurons and endocrine cells are activity patterns that facilitate the secretion of neuro-

transmitters and hormones, and have been the focus of study for sev... More

Dayton Syme (FSU Mathematics)
A Mathematical Model of Immune Response to Immunotherapy in Breast Cancer
Biomath Seminar
Time: 3:05pm
Location: LOV 200
Despite many advances in the treatment of triple negative breast cancer, the available treatment options are still quite limited and not broadly successful for improving tumor response. Recent treatme... More
 
Oct 6
Dr. Monica Hurdal (FSU Mathematics)
Brain Mapping via Geometry, Topology, and Differential Equations
Biomath Seminar
Time: 3:05pm
Location: LOV 200
In this presentation I will give an overview of my research involving conformal flat maps of the human brain. The functional processing of the brain mainly occurs on the surface, in the cerebral corte... More

Nicole Bruce (FSU Mathematics)
Synchronization of pancreatic islets in a mathematical model
Biomath Seminar
Time: 3:05pm
Location: LOV 200
Insulin is released in pulses from beta cells in pancreatic islets. There are around one million islets in the human pancreas. The fact that we observe clear, high amplitude pulses of insulin in the b... More

Bayesian estimation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa viscoelastic properties
Biomath Seminar
Time: 3:05pm
Location: LOV 200
Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilms in cystic fibrosis (CF) infections are initiated by individual bacteria that produce various types of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS). The major components of ... More
