Interdisciplinary Oncology Lab
We focus on the development and integration of experimental biology, mathematical modeling, and computational simulation applied to cancer. The aim of this integrated physical sciences/biology work is to predict tumor growth and invasion from the molecular and cellular scale events, with the ultimate goal to help analyze tumors of specific patients.

Computer simulation of a tumor with two cell populations, with model parameters calibrated from glioblastoma (brain cancer). Snapshot of viable tumor tissue (gray) is shown in 3D contours with a secondary mutated species (red) at day 63 after inception. Neovascularization is represented by conducting (brown) and non-conducting vessels (yellow). Frieboes et al., J Theor Biol, 2010.
