March 18-20, 2010
Workshop on Mathematical Oncology III

Organizing Committee:
M. Kohandel (UWaterloo)
P. Maini (Oxford)
V. Quaranta (Vanderbilt)
S. Sivaloganathan (CMM & Uwaterloo)


This is the third in a series of workshops on mathematical oncology run by the Centre for Mathematical Medicine (CMM) and forms part of the fifth anniversary celebrations of CMM. The interdisciplinary field of mathematical oncology is developing rapidly and the aims of the workshop are to bring together an internationally renowned group of experimental, clinical and theoretical researchers to present and discuss problems of current interest in the field. The workshop is broad in scope and the talks should be accessible to experimentalists, clinicians and theoreticians.


The workshop will consist of a number of keynote and invited talks. Moreover, scheduled discussion sessions open to all participants will streamline the synergies between the different approaches and help to identify new avenues for future research. We hope that this type of structure will provide new insights and inspiration for experts and newcomers in the field alike.

There are roughly 20 talks over the duration of the workshop. This may seem like a large number of talks but because of the interdisciplinary nature of this workshop with participants from three different core disciplines (mathematics, cancer biology, clinical oncology), the diversity of this number of talks is crucial for the success of this workshop.
