Based at the Moffitt Cancer Center, Florida, Cancer Ecology is a small research group led by David Basanta. We are mathematical modellers who work with biologists and clinicians, trying to understand the ecology of tumors and the evolutionary dynamics of cancer progression and resistance to treatment.

Approximating spatial structure with the Ohtsuki-Nowak transform

Artem is the mathematical brains behind a project where he, Jacob Scott and myself have worked to come with a simple (a first order approximation) game theoretical model of the effect of edges on growing tumours. To do so we have used the Ohtsuki-Nowak transform. Here Artem explains the philosophy of our approach.
