Modelling Aspects of Solid Tumour Growth
|Dates:||23 March 2015|
|Times:||14:00 - 15:00|
|What is it:||Seminar|
|Organiser:||Faculty of Life Sciences|
|Who is it for:||Current University students, University staff|
In this talk I will review some work we have done on aspects of solid tumour growth. This will consist of three cases studies modelling:
1. acid-mediated cell invasion,
2. movement through heterogeneous media, with application to glioblastoma,
3. colorectal crypt dynamics.
The models range from coupled systems of nonlinear partial differential equations to discrete cell-based models. In each case, results will be compared with experiment and the mathematical challenges raised highlighted.
