Application of ecological and mathematical theory to cancer: new challenges

05/12/2014 - 05/15/2014
Workshop Goals: Cancer is a complex, multi-scale process, in which genetic mutations occurring at a sub-cellular level manifest themselves as functional changes at the cellular and tissue scale. The main aim of this workshop is to bring together applied mathematicians and researchers in various fields of mathematical oncology and ecology in order to exchange ideas and discuss current stages and challenges in modeling tumor growth, cancer progression and developing therapeutic strategies.
