MBI Workshop on Targeting Cancer Cell Proliferation and Metabolism Networks
Month: March 2015
Date: March 23--27
Name: MBI Workshop on Targeting Cancer Cell Proliferation and Metabolism Networks
Location: Mathematical Biosciences Institute, The Ohio State University, Jennings Hall 3rd Floor, 1735 Neil Ave., Columbus, Ohio.
This workshop will encompass a mix of experimentalists and mathematicians. Ideally, the former will be engaged on the production of large datasets on cancer cell proliferation, both at the cell population and single-cell level, and in response to microenvironment perturbations including anti-proliferative drugs. The latter will focus on mathematical models of proliferation and metabolism at several scales, including genetic, signaling and cellular, including a focus on the ability of cancer cell populations to regenerate and reprogram in response to hostile microenvironment and to targeted treatment, ultimately persisting in their proliferative state. Multi-scale models connecting the growth of cultured cancer cells and/or individual tumors to epidemiological data will also be considered. Although tumor growth and cancer cell proliferation have been modeled mathematically for decades, adequate datasets have been scarce and fragmentary due to experimental limitations.
