Tom Franz was recently awarded a three-year NRF Collaborative Postgraduate Training Grant worth R2.7m.The research project is concerned with multiscale modelling of cell therapies for myocardial infarction with the aim to develop computational tools to study and optimise the mechanobiological interplay between stem cells, therapeutic biomaterials and the infarcted myocardium.
