CancerEvo is a research group led by David Basanta

We are mathematical modellers who work with biologists and clinicians

We try to understand

  • the ecology of tumors

  • the evolutionary dynamics of cancer progression

  • resistance to treatment

Based at the Moffitt Cancer Center, Florida

Academics are not as keen on our ivory towers as this article by NYT's Nicholas Kristof might lead you to believe but the message is still clear. Academics, reach out or enjoy irrelevance.
