“Mathematical tales of a sperm tail” - Hermes Gadelha - University of Bristol

10 a. m., room 1D

Breakthrough research into the mechanics of sperm tails has profound implications for life itself, from human reproduction to the development of sustainable food production. Fluid dynamics, elasticity and mathematical biology can provide predictive insights into the mechanics of these specialised cells during their arduous journey through the often hostile environment of the female reproductive tract.
Brazilian-born Dr Hermes Gadelha talks about his work at the fertile union of mathematical logic, biomechanics and medicine.
