Migration of a cell population is a complicated process. It is influenced by effects occurring on various scales, calling for a multiscale approach. In this talk I will present a derivation of a model starting from a system describing the movement of individual cells, through a mesoscopic kinetic transport equation (KTE), and resulting in a macroscopic equation for cell density. A key to this procedure is a novel approach to upscaling of KTEs.
