Workshop project : maths and cancer in Marseille FRANCE in 2018

Home

This workshop aims at bringing together specialists and young researchers from different mathematical backgrounds (modeling, numerical simulations and analysis) and working in the field of oncology and from the world of oncology and oncopharmacology. This workshop would follows two previous workshops successfully organized in CIRM in 2009, 2011 and 2015. The interest of bringing closer the world of mathematicians, oncologists and biologists is getting more and more accepted and is a very promising way of setting trans-disciplinary collaborations. Important progresses have been achieved in the discipline of onco-mathematics in the last decade. Among other topics, we might develop:

  • Evolution and cancer (atavistic theory and moving epigenetic landscape)
  • Drug resistance
  • Heterogeneity in cancer cell populations
  • Upscaling models (from ODEs in single cells to structured PDEs in cell populations)
  • Metabolism, stemness and epigenetic treatments
  • Biomarkers, imagery; from single cell genetic/epigenetic measurements to distributed heterogeneity in cell population models
  • From ABMs to PDEs
  • Immunotherapies (immune checkpoint inhibitors, oncolytic viruses, engineered T-cells/macrophages, pathogen-based treatments, etc.)
  • Motion of cancer cells, EMT, and motion of cohort-like (sheer epithelial) cell populations
  • Etc.
