Granuloma formation

We're currently working on simulations of granuloma formation in the liver. This video shows an early prototype built to test our ideas about how sinusoidal networks could be modelled. The blood vessels are coloured according to their chemokine levels, with chemokines diffusing away from infected sections of vessel wall; blue blobs are Kupffer cells that follow the chemokine gradient to form granulomas to fight the infections. (Pink blobs just wander the network at random.)
