Cancer is a class of diseases characterised by the three traits
of uncontrolled growth, invasion and metastasis. Once diagnosed,
the standard treatment is some combination of surgery, chemotherapy
and radiotherapy. With more recent research developments, treatments
are becoming more specific for different types of cancer. There
have been significant advances in the development of targetted drug
therapies that hone in on detectable molecular abnormalities (thus
minimising damage to normal cells), development of novel drug delivery
systems, optimization of combination therapies and in numerous other
directions. Hand in hand with the significant advances in experimental
cancer biology and clinical oncology, the last decade has witnessed
an increasing interaction between oncology and the mathematical
sciences. This has resulted in an interdisciplinary field of research
nowadays referred to as "mathematical oncology". This
synergistic interaction between oncology and mathematics heralds
an era (in the nottoodistant future) where mathematical oncology
will become an integral part of the study of cancer. This workshop
brings together cancer biologists, clinical researchers and mathematical
scientists, to provide stimulus and impetus to this interdisciplinary
approach which will, no doubt, be central to the conquest of cancer.

Apply to the Program
All scientific events are open to the mathematical sciences community.
Visitors who are interested in office space or funding are
requested to apply by filling out the application
form. Additional support is available (pending NSF funding)
to support junior US visitors to this program. Fields scientific
programs are devoted to research in the mathematical sciences, and
enhanced graduate and postdoctoral training opportunities. Part
of the mandate of the Institute is to broaden and enlarge the community,
and to encourage the participation of women and members of visible
minority groups in our scientific programs.
