Research


MCell related research at the PSC, Salk Institute, and University of Pittsburgh focuses on spatially realistic cell modeling in biomedicine, using Monte Carlo and hybrid simulation algorithms coupled to specialized model construction, editing, and visualization tools.  Research thus falls into two interconnected categories, software development and biomedical application projects.

Software Development

  • MCell
  • CellBlender
  • PSC_DX
  • DReAMM
    Note: CellBlender has replaced PSC_DX and DReAMM as the primary tool to visualize MCell simulations. As such, PSC_DX and DReAMM are no longer under active development, but will remain available for download.
