The MBI Bootcamp on Cancer Modeling is aimed at young researchers in the biological and biomedical sciences, although young researchers in the mathematical sciences will both benefit from and be accepted into the bootcamp. The bootcamp will focus on three themes surrounding cancer modeling: signaling pathways, tumor growth, and radiotherapy.
Three speakers will address each theme: the first will provide the general biological background to the theme, the second will review the relevant modeling, while the third will deliver a state-of-the-art talk and suggest directions/challenges for future research. Each theme will also include a lab session where participants can experiment with pre-programmed models.
The bootcamp presenters will include:
The bootcamp will also have a poster session at which participants are invited to display and discuss their work.
Local support is available for interested graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. Please apply on the MBI website. Full consideration will be given to applications received by August 2, 2010.
