Throughout his career as a computation scientist Myles Kim has mastered computational methods that are applicable to the combination of mathematical theories of elasticity, fluid dynamics, and reaction-diffusion system in the context of biological model development. At Florida Polytechnic University, Kim has been developing a computational model to explore the mechanical roles of microtubules in response to anti-cancer treatment and their roles in the cellular functions. He has also been working on a 3D individual cell-based model which incorporates physical interaction between cells, chemical interactions through secretion/consumption, and individually regulated cell-cycle progression including cell proliferation and cell death. This model is suitable to be used for 3D tissue environment simulations and will provide a framework to build a computational model which can capture mechanical and biochemical interaction between tumor cells and stromal cells.
