    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Dr. Ebrahimi's scholarly interest revolves around the exploration of the plausibility of deriving kinetic insights from statistical attributes. This intellectual pursuit relies heavily on discerning correlations between patterns and spatial arrangements of pathological biomarkers, and the dynamic kinetics of the underlying system. The primary objective of Dr. Ebrahimi's research is to develop sophisticated methodologies that shed light on the intricate dynamics of physiological microenvironments, particularly with regard to unraveling the complexities associated with cancer. This entails the identification and analysis of phenotypes, exploring their interconnections and interactions, and scrutinizing potential emergent behaviors that may arise from these intricate interplays.
    Opportunities exist for students keen on spatiotemporal models for dynamic biological systems.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
