The project MAthematics for CARotid ENdarterectomy @ MOX (MACAREN@MOX) gathers researchers in numerical analysis, statistics and computer sciences, and medical doctors in cardiac surgery, with the aim of investigating the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis in human carotids. The project intends specifically to study the role of blood fluid-dynamics and vessel morphology on the formation process and histological properties of atherosclerotic plaques. The project also involves Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico - Milano and the Mathematics Institute of Computational Science and Engineering - Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne EPFL.
