Mathematical Modelling of Cancer Growth and Treatment Summer School & Workshop


The Mathematical Biology Group at Dundee University is pleased to announce a summer school and workshop on Cancer Modelling to be held at the West Park Conference Centre from Sunday the 15th until Saturday the 28th of August, 2010.

The summer school is intended for PhD-students and Post-Docs interested in cancer modelling. Potential participants with backgrounds in applied mathematics, bioengineering, or biomedicine are welcome. Acceptance to the school is competitive, aiming also at regional and gender balance. The school is mainly supported by the European Commission Marie Curie Program. Eligible candidates who are accepted (both from the EU and from outside the EU) will have complete financial support for living accommodations and possibly partial support for traveling to the school. Non-EU supported individuals may also participate by paying a School Fee. School participation includes tuition, social events and full board with accommodation starting Sunday evening, August 15th, 2010, until Saturday morning, August 28th, 2010.

Mathematical modelling of cancer growth is now beginning to take into account experimental data and information over a wide range of spatial and temporal scales - genetic, intra-cellular, extra-cellular, cell-cell and cell-tissue interactions - in so-called multi-scale models. The summer school will focus on mathematical modelling and treatment of cancer across all the aforementioned scales. A workshop will take place on the final two days of the summer school.
