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.

The department of Integrated Mathematical Oncology (and specially Heiko Enderling) is very keen on the idea that cutting edge research does not live in isolation of the community where it is produced. For that reason, we have been inviting high school students from the Academy at the lakes to come and see our work and facilities at Moffitt. Not only they get to see that maths and computer science are key in cancer research but, as you can see in the picture, that the 80s were the best time to be alive if you like fashion.
