School on Mathematical Modelling of Tumour Growth and Therapy

The forthcoming Advanced Course as part of the Intensive Research Programme Recent Progress in Mathematical Biology: School on Mathematical Modelling of Tumour Growth and Therapy,  which will be held from April 3rd to 6th, 2018 at the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica (CRM).

Recent years have witnessed a renewed interest in mathematical modelling of tumour growth and therapy. This increase in activity in this area has been boosted by enhanced access to data (OMICS, medical imaging) and recent developments in the area of multi-scale modelling. This course is aimed at introducing recent progress in the field of mathematical modelling applied to tumour growth and oncology, particularly focused in the emergence of new modelling and analytical multi-scale techniques and the new opportunities for model validation based on increased availability of data. The course is particularly aimed at an audience composed of graduate students and postdocs in mathematics with an interest in the applications of mathematics to biology.

-Deadline for early registration: February 11th.
-Deadline for late registration: March 11th.

We are also currently accepting proposals for poster presentations. The deadline to apply is March 1st.

Grants available:
In order to increase the number of young researchers participating in this activity, the CRM announces a call for those participants interested in taking part in this activity. This grant includes a reduced registration fee (100 Euros) and housing in a shared apartment on campus from April 2nd to 7th, 2018.

-Deadline to apply for financial support: March 1st.
