In this presentation Guðrún Fema Ólafsdóttir, research assistant at IIIM, is introducing her project on simulated self-directed growth of human tissue. She aspires to create a new method for creating simulations of complex processes in the absence of a full mathematical model. Results of this project could benefit not only scientific but also medical understanding of biological processes.
