To maintain the blood system, billions of blood cells need to be generated on a daily basis. This is achieved by blood stem cells, immature blood cells that are able to self-renew and to generate progenitors that are committed to differentiate into mature blood cells.
This PhD project is well suited to students who would like to combine their knowledge of computational modelling, physics and mathematics to better understand human brain blood flow and how it can go wrong with brain disease.
Stroke is a common complication of atrial fibrillation (AF), which itself is the most widespread cardiac arrhythmia. However, the assessment of stroke risk is not straightforward in a large population of AF patients who are presented in sinus rhythm (SR), including patients after catheter ablation (CA) therapy, i.e.
