Project: ESR 1.1 Multiscale vascular modelling of retinal hemodynamics.

The research program is addressing the mathematical modelling and the numerical simulation of various phenomenon taking place in the retina. The work is in particular motivated by the modelling of diseases like the Retinopathy Of Prematurity (ROP), which is a common cause of blindness in children, or the Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD), which causes loss of central vision in the ageing population.

A multiscale mathematical model of the retinal hemodynamics will be proposed. The starting point will be a system of one-dimensional Euler equations. Numerical simulations will be based on the data obtained from retinal imaging modalities used in the Revammad network. Data assimilation techniques recently developed at INRIA will be used in order to adapt the model to measurements. Two modelling issues will be considered during the project: the neovascularization under the action of vascular endothelium growth factor and the interaction between neural cells and microcirculation.
