Note Editore

Modeling of Mass Transport Processes in Biological Media focuses on applications of mass transfer relevant to biomedical processes and technology-fields that require quantitative mechanistic descriptions of the delivery of molecules and drugs. This book features recent advances and developments in biomedical therapies with a focus on the associated theoretical and mathematical techniques necessary to predict mass transfer in biological systems.

The book is authored by over 50 established researchers who are internationally recognized as leaders in their fields. Each chapter contains a comprehensive introductory section for those new to the field, followed by recent modeling developments motivated by empirical experimental observation. Offering a unique opportunity for the reader to access recent developments from technical, theoretical, and engineering perspectives, this book is ideal for graduate and postdoctoral researchers in academia as well as experienced researchers in biomedical industries.

  • Offers updated information related to advanced techniques and fundamental knowledge, particularly advances in computer-based diagnostics and treatment and numerical simulations
  • Provides a bridge between well-established theories and the latest developments in the field
  • Coverage includes dialysis, inert solute transport (insulin), electrokinetic transport, cellular molecular uptake, transdermal drug delivery and respiratory therapies

Sid Becker is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Canterbury. He is an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow and is a recipient of the Royal Society of New Zealand Marsden Grant. He has held academic positions in Germany, the United States, and New Zealand. His research is primarily in computational and analytical modelling of heat and mass transfer processes in biological media. Dr. Becker is also the editor of the book Modeling of Microscale Transport in Biological Processes (2017) and co-editor of the books Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow in Biological Processes (2015), and Transport in Biological Media (2013).
Dr. Kuznetsov is Professor at the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering at North Carolina State University. He holds a joint professorial position at the University of North Carolina's Biomedical Engineering Department. He is a Fellow of American Society of Mechanical Engineering, an Editorial Board Member of the Proceeding of the Royal Society A, and an Associate Editor of the Journal of Porous Media. He is a recipient of the prestigious Humboldt Research Award. In 2014, Dr. Kuznetsov was elected as a Member of the Scientific Council of the International Center of Heat and Mass Transfer. He has published more than 400 journal papers, 17 book chapters, 3 books, and 100 conference papers. His works have been cited over 12,000 times: he has an h-index of 51 and an i-10 index of over 220. While his most notable early contributions are in the development of the field of porous media, Prof. Kuznetsov's research interests in the general area of numerical modeling are extensive, including transport in living tissues, sub-cellular transport, mass transport in neurons and axons, bioheat transport, bioconvective sedimentation, fluid mechanics, flows in microgravity, and turbulence.
