Modelling Collective Cell Motion in Biology and Medicine

Collective cell motion is a common phenomenon in biology - both in normal development and in disease. I will review work that we have been doing on examples in both cases. I will show how, working with experimental colleagues, we have been able to advance knowledge in the biological understanding of cranial neural crest cell invasion, using a hybrid agent-based model. I will then consider the well-known snail-trail model in angiogenesis and show that a systematic derivation starting from a cell-level master equation leads to a coupled system of partial differential equations that are quite different to those in the literature.
