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.

As every year since I arrived to Tampa, I will be running Miles for Moffitt, the charity race that raises fund for cancer research at Moffitt. I am not in great shape, having injured my right calf 10 days ago, but that is clearly not the point and I will run slowly if that is what it takes. So I hope to see some of you this coming Saturday (14th May) and, if you cannot come but want to help cancer research, here's the fundraising page for our team IMOffitt as well as my personal one.
