Modelling Aspects of Solid Tumour Growth
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
We present a number of models proposed to address different aspects of solid tumour growth. A simple partial differential equation model is shown to make experimentally verified predictions on how certain tumours invade due to the acidic environments they create through metabolism. A hybrid cellular automaton model is presented to investigate somatic evolution and, finally, a multiscale model for tumour vasculogenesis is presented, encorporating blood vessel structural adaption and angiogenesis.
