Alber leads cancer modeling session at AAAS annual meeting

Author: Stoller-Conrad, Jessica



From the election to the economy, mathematical and computational models have been gaining mainstream recognition for their successes in predicting human behavior – and now similar models may be used to predict the behavior of cancer cells in the human body.


A session at the recent 2013 AAAS Annual Meeting organized by Mark Alber, the Vincent J. Duncan Family Professor of Applied Mathematics at Notre Dame, addressed several roles of mathematical modeling in cancer research. Alber also moderated a discussion among leading mathematical and computational biologists on multi-scale models used in cancer research.
