Bang: Research Topics

Mamba (ex-Bang) project-team: research topics

  • Cell division cycle modelling for healthy or cancer cell populations

      Age and cyclin-structured partial differential equation (PDE) models for proliferating and quiescent cell populations.

      See an overview in a presentation (pdf) by Jean Clairambault: "The cell division cycle, circadian rhythm and tumour growth"

  • Aggregation-fragmentation models for prion and Alzheimer's diseases

      Theory and Observations of Polymerization processes in Prion and Alzheimer diseases.

      TOPPAZ is a 3-year (2009-2012) research project financed by an ANR grant ("programme blanc" 2009).

  • Molecular cancer pharmacotherapy and its optimisation

      Pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic models (PK-PD, systems of ordinary differential equations)with physiological basis of the action of anticancer drugs on their cell targets: as input, an instantaneous drug flow in the organism as output, a modification of the main physiological controls of the cell division cycle (p53, cyclins, CDKs), and its consequences on the proliferation of the involved cell populations (asymptotic behaviour: density of cells, Malthus exponent).

      Optimisation of the drug flow into the organism so as to maximise anti-tumour efficacy under the constraint of preserving healthy tissues.

      See an outview in a presentation (pdf) by Jean Clairambault: Models of proliferating cell populations under pharmacological control to optimise cancer treatments"

      Work led in collaboration with Francis Lévi's U 776 INSERM team Biological Rhythms and Cancers.

  • Individual-based models of tissue and tumour growth

      The research group Multicellular systems focuses on the understanding of tissue formation on different time and length scales.
      It pursues projects on the development of models to permit realistic simulations of multicellular organization processes, and on the analysis of data that occur during this processes.

  • Free surface flows (Saint-Venant, Navier-Stokes): see the home page of the new INRIA project-team ANGE

      The part of the ex-team BANG that has become ANGE in 2012 is involved in research concerning the numerical simulation of free surface geophysical flows such as rivers, lakes, coastal areas. Many applications related to environmental problems are concerned(flooding, Dam breaks...) and different models are considered, such as: Saint-Venant Equations (Shallow Water), Pollutant Transport Equation and others.
      The aim is to obtain robust and efficient numerical tools based on theoretical results ensuring the accuracy and the preservation of physical properties of the flow (conservation, positivity of water depth, equilibrium states...).
