Mathematical Perspectives in the Biology and Therapeutics of Cancer

This workshop aims at bringing together specialists and young researchers from different mathematical backgrounds (modeling, numerical simulations and analysis) working in the fields of oncology and oncopharmacology. This meeting follows three previous workshops successfully organized in CIRM in 2009, 2011 and 2015. Bringing the world of mathematicians, oncologists and biologists closer is a promising way of setting up interdisciplinary collaborations which have led to important progress in the discipline of onco-mathematics in the last decade.

– 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
