Project Details


This project aims to determine the fundamental mechanisms that drive particle transport in physiologically realistic human airways. Through use of novel magnetic resonance imaging and laser diagnostic techniques, the project expects to transform our ability to develop effective and validated predictive capabilities for particle transport in physiologically accurate geometries. The project outcomes are expected to enable unprecedented definition of how particles are transported in human airways as a function of breathing profiles, particle properties and morphology.
