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.

Etienne at Moffitt's 2018 Scientific Symposium

Etienne at Moffitt's 2018 Scientific Symposium

It is only the second time in the history of this symposium, one in which Moffitt scientists showcase the depth and breadth of our research, that a mathematical model is presented. While most of the institute's work is presented in the form of poster, only a few researchers get to present their work orally.

It is thus an honor that Etienne got to present our work with LoChen Hao and Conor Lynch to an audience made of basic experimental biologists, clinical researchers, drug developers, chemists, medical physicists and, of course, the rest of the IMO department.
