1st Transatlantic Workshop on Multiscale Cancer Modelling

This workshop will take place alongside the ICT BIO 2008 conference.
Computational and mathematical cancer modeling is already a driving force behind interdisciplinary cancer systems biology. Understanding cancer as a complex dynamic biosystem requires finding ways to investigate and ultimately target its many constituents and their dynamic relationships across multiple scales in space and time – i.e., multi-scale modeling and simulation. Geared towards translation into clinical practice, long term goals of these modeling approaches include supporting patient specific treatment optimization.

In recognizing the significant contribution of teams on both sides of the Atlantic to this emergent field of in silico oncology, the US National Cancer Institute and the European Commission jointly support a workshop that is being co-organized by NCI's Center for the Development of a Virtual Tumor, CViT, and EU's Advancing Clinico Genomics Trials Program, ACGT.

This workshop aims to present cutting edge approaches, to demonstrate the field’s potential and to discuss common challenges it faces in moving forward. The ideal outcome is facilitated interaction between the teams, increased visibility of the achievements beyond the nascent community and formulation of a shared vision that can be advanced into joint funding programs.
