Modelling Challenges in Cancer and Immunology
King's College London, Strand Building, Room S0.12.
This workshop will bring together experts in immunology, cancer development and applied mathematicians to discuss recent advances in cancer immunology, open questions and modelling challenges. Topics will include dynamics of the immune response, tumor-immune interactions and frontiers in cancer immunotherapy. The aim of the meeting is to promote the exchange of new experimental and theoretical results, create a roadmap for future developments and encourage new collaborations.
- The workshop booklet with abstracts is available here.
