Medical sensors are micro devices containing several parts mainly including micro-tubes, micro-valves, biological/body fluids (blood, plasma, saliva, etc.), and chemical materials (reagents and other materials). Microfluidic is an interdisciplinary field that involves the science and technology of fluid flow through systems with micro scales. Computational systems and engineering simulation seem essential from start to the end of the medical sensor design and development process. The main advantages of computational systems (AI, CFD, etc.) in medical sensors design and development are as follow:
- Improvement and optimization of design;
- Acceleration in medical device innovation;
- Reduction of cost and failure risk;
- Shortens time of production and regulatory approval processes
The main objectives:
Prof. Patrizia Piro
- Determining the role of computational systems (AI, CFD, etc.) in medical sensors design and development;
- Determining role of simulation to optimize the analysis process and design of medical micro-sensors;
- Using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to analyze medical micro sensors;
- Using computational systems to combine engineering, biology, chemical and other criteria.
, Prof. Patrizia Piro is a Full Professor at the Department of Civil Engineering of University of Calabria (Italy). She is currently Vice-Rector of University of Calabria (Italy) and chair of the "Urban Hydraulic Center Studies (CSDU)" in Italy. Her research principally focuses on urban water management, with main focus on real time control of urban drainage networks and on LID (Low Impact Development) systems implementation. Her main interests are: combined sewer overflows, water pollution, flood risk mitigation, water saving, urban stormwater management, water treatment, urban drainage, low impact development, soil science, experimental analysis, and numerical modeling. She is currently: Guest Editor of Special Issue "Innovative, Smart and Sustainable Solutions for Urban Storm water Management" in Water (an Open Access Journal by MDPI); Guest Editor of Special Issue "Sustainable Urban Stormwater Management" in Sustainability (an Open Access Journal by MDPI); Guest Editor of Special Issue "Soil–Water–City Nexus in Urban Environment: Experimental Investigations and Numerical Analysis in Urban Hydrology Science" in Hydrology (an Open Access Journal by MDPI); Guest Editor of Special Issue "Climate Change Impacts on Urban Stormwater Management" in Atmosphere (an Open Access Journal by MDPI).
