Cellular-scale hydrodynamics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We summarize several approaches for learning about cellular-scale hydrodynamics using microfluidic methods. In particular, we consider the response of suspensions of red blood cells to flows in constrictions, and the mechanical response of individual cells to confinement while flowing. In addition, we present some ideas and results for multiphase flows (liquid-liquid and gas-liquid) in part because of their potential for controlled studies of individual cells or small numbers of cells.
