Ryo has been working on development and application of computational modelling frameworks, in conjunction with various medical imaging modalities, to better understand mechanism of cardiovascular diseases and efficacy of treatments. Computational models in these days play increasingly important roles, by complementing experimental studies, to tackle healthcare challenges in our ageing society. The foci of this talk will be on computational modelling in two application areas: atherosclerotic coronary diseases and tissue engineered constructs for musculoskeletal diseases. Recent activities towards predicting disease progression in native coronary vessels and recurrence of the disease after stenting – primarily using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) – will be discussed first. It will then be followed by introduction of a new approach to model cell-tissue interaction in the development of tissue-engineered muscular constructs, towards predicting functionality of the construct and optimising culture condition.
