  • Structured models of cell migration incorporating molecular binding processes 

    Domschke, Pia; Trucu, Dumitru; Gerisch, Alf; Chaplain, Mark Andrew Joseph (2017-12) - Journal article
    The dynamic interplay between collective cell movement and the various molecules involved in the accompanying cell signalling mechanisms plays a crucial role in many biological processes including normal tissue development ...
  • Coronal energy release by MHD avalanches : continuous driving 

    Reid, Jack; Hood, Alan William; Parnell, Clare Elizabeth; Browning, P. K.; Cargill, Peter (2018-03-23) - Journal article
    Previous work has confirmed the concept of a magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) avalanche in pre-stressed threads within a coronal loop. We undertook a series of full, three-dimensional MHD simulations in order to create three ...
  • Modelling the effects of bacterial cell state and spatial location on tuberculosis treatment : insights from a hybrid multiscale cellular automaton model 

    Bowness, Ruth; Chaplain, Mark A.J.; Powathil, Gibin G.; Gillespie, Stephen H. (2018-06-07) - Journal article
    If improvements are to be made in tuberculosis (TB) treatment, an increased understanding of disease in the lung is needed. Studies have shown that bacteria in a less metabolically active state, associated with the presence ...
  • Photospheric observations of surface and body modes in solar magnetic pores 

    Keys, Peter H.; Morton, Richard J.; Jess, David B.; Verth, Gary; Grant, Samuel D.T.; Mathioudakis, Mihalis; Mackay, Duncan H.; Doyle, John G.; Christian, Damian J.; Keenan, Francis P.; Erdélyi, Robertus (2018-04-10) - Journal article
    Over the past number of years, great strides have been made in identifying the various low-order magnetohydrodynamic wave modes observable in a number of magnetic structures found within the solar atmosphere. However, one ...
  • Transverse wave induced Kelvin-Helmholtz rolls in spicules 

    Antolin, Patrick; Schmit, Don; Pereira, Tiago M. D.; De Pontieu, Bart; De Moortel, Ineke (2018-03-23) - Journal article
    In addition to their jet-like dynamic behaviour, spicules usually exhibit strong transverse speeds, multi-stranded structure and heating from chromospheric to transition region temperatures. In this work we first analyse ...
