The paper describes ongoing work on a project to simulate the behavior of epidermal growth factor receptors. These are structures which can be found on the surface of cells in the body, which receive and process chemical signals concerned with cell growth. The implementation of a program which simulates the stimulation and clustering behavior of these structures is described, then the paper discusses how the simualtion can be scaled up so that a whole cell can be simulated on a tractable timescale. Finaly some early results are given which show the effect of changing parameters in the system, and discuss ongoning work on calibrating the simulation against results from experiments.
