The Modeling of Cancer Progression and Immunotherapy

December 12 to December 16, 2005

at the

American Institute of Mathematics, Palo Alto, California

organized by

Lisette de Pillis, Ami Radunskaya, and Charles Wiseman

Original Announcement

This workshop will bring together a multidisciplinary collection of experts to work on refining mathematical models of cancer growth, therapy delivery, and cancer interaction with the immune system.

The main topics for the workshop are

A central goal of the workshop will be to combine state of the art knowledge of immune-related treatment strategies with mathematical models that can reflect realistic qualitative and quantitative behavior of cancer growth and response to treatment. Using mathematical optimal control techniques applied to models that incorporate current understanding of testing and treatment options available, we aim to initiate the development of new candidate treatment protocols that are optimized in terms of dosage, delivery site, and treatment schedules.
