NBCR is pleased to offer a Summer Training Program (STP) August 13th to 17th, 2018 on the theme of image-based meshing and structural modeling. This week-long intensive program will introduce 12-20 students to principles, methods, and NBCR tools for generating high-quality three-dimensional meshes for numerical analysis in multi-scale modeling of subcellular, cell, tissue, and organ biophysics.
Structural models will be derived from structural data obtained primarily from 3D imaging modalities, including electron tomography, multi-photon and confocal microscopy, and whole-body medical imaging modalities like CT and MRI.
The course will include:
1. Automated and manual image segmentation and annotation strategies;
2. improving the quality of surface meshes and generating volumetric meshes with GAMer;
3. using Hex-Blender to construct 3D models as well as developing high-order finite-element meshes, including patient-specific organ models with Continuity. Participants will learn to build meshes and models that are suitable for a range of biophysical modeling applications from stochastic Monte Carlo, Brownian Dynamics simulations, subcellular and whole- cell transport to whole-organ biomechanics and electrophysiology investigations. Introductions and hand-on tutorials to:
4. SEEKR and BrownDye and;
5. cellPACK and cellVIEW tools.
In consultation with the course organizers, those accepted into the program will be encouraged to bring and work with their own data sets.
