Mathematical Models of Tumor-Immune System Dynamics

We are pleased to announce that Eddy Pasquier from the Children’s Cancer Institute Australia for Medical Research, UNSW, Australia and also co-founder of MGHI will give a lecture about metronomics at the workshop on “Mathematical Models of Tumor-Immune System Dynamics” to be held at the University of Sydney, Australia from January 7th to January 10th , 2013.

Recent progress in cancer immunology and the advances in immunotherapy suggest that the immune system plays a fundamental role in host defense against tumor, and could be utilized to prevent or cure cancer. Although theoretical and experimental studies of tumor-immune system dynamics have a long history, there are still many unanswered questions about the complex interaction mechanisms between the immune system and a growing tumor. This international workshop will provide a joint forum for leading applied mathematicians, biologists and clinicians actively working in the field of cancer immunology in order to exchange ideas, advance the knowledge of research in this field by rising awareness of the available innovative mathematical tools in cancer systems biology, and explore opportunities for collaborative exchange and education between the Asia Pacific, European, African and North American countries.
