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.

Thanks to funding from the state of Florida's Bankhead Coley (funding a project I talked about before), our group now includes Dr. Etienne Baratchart. Etienne is joining us from the University of Bordeaux in France where he just finished a PhD under the supervision of Sebastien Benzekry and  Thierry Colin with a project of modelling the pre-metastatic niche. Etienne will be working with Chenhao Lo and Conor Lynch to study how macrophages and other stromal cells in the bone impact prostate cancer to bone metastases. Stay tuned!
