Numerical Modeling of the Drug Carrier Transport for Targeted Drug Delivery in Liver Cancer

The goal of the project is to explore the added value of computational models to
optimize targeted drug delivery for unresectable liver cancer. Patient-/rat-specific 3D computational fluid dynamics models of the blood circulation and drug transport in the liver will be developed. The envisaged project may reveal new possibilities to manipulate the drug distribution and maximally affect tumorous tissue.
