The proposed minisymposium will bring together researchers in the area of biomembrane simulations. It will provide a forum for discussion of the recent advances in multiscale modeling of the mechanics of healthy and diseased red blood cells and blood flow in the microcirculation. The minisymposium will encourage the exchange of ideas between researchers working across the spectrum of methods – from particle-based to continuum-based methods.
