We study mathematically and numerically the polymerization/fragmentation equation involved in prion aggregation. We have investigated first the case of a size-dependent polymerization rate motivated by recent experiments. We now focus on some issue in optimization of protocol. This is closely related to recent challenges in fitness optimization, and optimal control.
