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.

We have been participating in the HIP-IMO program since it was established by Heiko Enderling 4 years ago and this year is no exception. This program brings high school students to Moffitt so they can explore how mathematical modeling can help cancer research.

Sofia is joining us from Palm Harbor University High and will be working under Anna's mentorship on a project to understand the role of environmentally mediated resistance to treatment in cancer.
