Mathematical Modelling of Cancer

Prof. Thomas Hillen (University of Alberta (Canada))

Thursday 1st May, 2014 14:00-15:00 Maths 326


Hanahan and Weinberg recently defined what is known as the hallmarks of cancer. I will use these hallmarks to motivate the understanding of cancer as an ecosystem. I will use this perspective to present mathematical modelling of specific cancers, including glioma spread, optimization of radiation treatment, and the relevance of cancer stem cells.
