The department of Mathematics and Statistics invites you to a seminar by
Dr. Martin Meere (Department of Mathematical Physics, NUI Galway): 



Title:  Some mathematical models for drug delivery

Abstract:  Much of this talk will consist of a general introduction to
the mathematical modelling of drug delivery systems. Optimal drug
delivery requires the drug to be delivered to the right place, at the
right time, and with the required dosage and release duration.
Mathematical modelling has been extensively used to help realise these
goals. In this talk, I shall describe some problems for barrier release
(reservoir) systems, monolithic systems, stent systems, and systems
involving polymer swelling. If time permits, I shall also describe a
proposed model for diffusion from a thermo-responsive polymer, such as
Poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAm). 


The seminar will take place on Friday 11th December, at 4pm, in A2-002.
