SESSION CHAIR - DR SEAN McGINTY
Sean is lead of a group focussed on developing theoretical and computational tools to help understand biological processes, disease and treatment, in collaboration with experimental groups. Sean has expertise in theoretical modelling of biological systems broadly within the application areas of drug discovery and drug delivery ans his work is multi-disciplinary, involving collaborating with mathematicians, life scientists, engineers, clinicians and industry.
Sean is perhaps best known for my modelling of drug eluting-stents, and my group have recently published the first predictive model of in vivo drug-eluting stent performance as well as a model of the restenosis process after stent implantation. Models have culminated in the development of a novel drug-eluting stent in collaboration with industry and the NHS.
