DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Jennifer Flegg (University of Melbourne)\nThe proces
s by which a skin wound heals is complicated and requires the concerted ac
tion of a large number of cell types\, chemicals and fibres. There have be
en many attempts to mathematically describe the wound healing process usin
g a variety of different mathematical approaches. In this talk\, I will re
view some of the earlier mathematical models developed for wound healing a
nd the biological impact they have made. My own research into the mathema
tical modelling of wound healing is aimed at informing clinical treatment
of non-healing wounds by devising governing equations which capture the es
sential behaviour of the complex system. In this talk I will discuss seve
ral of these mathematical models\, the clinical insight gained by numerica
l and analytical investigation of them and the future challenges that I se
e in this research area.\n\nhttps://conferences.maths.unsw.edu.au/event/2/
