Lay Summary

The complex interplay among often disparate clinical, laboratory, and computational science applications impacting cancer medicine and biology demands innovative and interdisciplinary methods of cancer research. Cancer biologists and clinicians must collaborate with leading researchers in mathematics, computational science and engineering to more effectively study cancer and develop cutting edge tools that will lead to creative solutions. This training program in Computational Cancer Biology (CCBTP) will bring together principles of computational and physical science with basic and clinical cancer biology to develop an emerging generation of computational cancer biologists with a unified co...
