Mathematicians Create Computer Simulation of Burn Wounds to Improve Treatment

A team of mathematicians has been working on improving how special microbeads can be used to stop bacterial infestations of burn wounds. Microbeads coated with a protein used by bacteria to stick to cells seem to make the bacteria bind less to the living cells nearby. In order to magnify this effect, the mathematical team created a computational model to simulate different uses of the microbeads on different wounds.

The simulator can be used to control for a bunch of different variable, but the long term value is in developing a generalized way of simulating many more healing processes.

Here’s a U of Birmingham video about the researchers behind the study:
