Climate is a prime example of a “multi-scale” system:
important phenomena occur on a spectrum of scales spanning from global circulation (10^4 km) to cloud-scale processes (1 cm).
VIRTUAL WIND TUNNEL
Numerical experiments in a “virtual wind tunnel” and the concept of “virtual wind tunnel” aims at replacing, in the future, some real wind-tunnel experiments by corresponding which simulations, will yield a much larger wealth of data relevant for design purposes.
CANCER SCREENING (ECPC)
E-Science for cancer prevention and control is a SeRC flagship project that focuses on integrating novel findings from bioinformatics and image analyses with the Swedish nationwide registers and cohort studies in the population. eCPC utilises this ensemble of data for modelling the natural history of cancer and personalised cancer screening.
GROMACS - MOLECULAR SIMULATION
We know surprisingly little of how drugs penerate skin, and it is very hard to design new such drugs since we do not yet understand the molecular organisation of skin. SeRC has used coarse-grained molecular simulations to describe the process where ceramides and other lipids fold into multiple layers forming the stratum corneum outer skin through intermediate cubic phases.
