The Patlak-Keller-Segel equations (PKS) are widely applied to model the chemotaxis phenomena in biology. It is well-known that if the total mass of the initial cell density is large enough, the PKS equations exhibit finite time blow-up. In this talk, I present some recent results on applying additional fluid flows to suppress chemotactic blow-up in the PKS equations. These are joint works with Jacob Bedrossian and Eitan Tadmor.
