Quantitative Perspectives on Cancer
from 28 May 2018 to 01 June 2018 Nordita, Stockholm



Nordita, Stockholm, Sweden


From a clinical point of view, cancer is a devastating disease. From the point of view of theoretical physics, it is fascinating. Cancer progression involves cells changing shape, cells that migrate under constraints imposed by the human body, flow of blood and cells, and changing of the physical characteristics of a human tissue, to give just a few examples. Moreover, some aspects of cancer development, such as population genetics, are well rooted within subfields of theoretical physics. In this conference, we will host world-renown experts in cancer research who will present their views of fundamental problems that limit our understanding of cancer (and where theoretical physics might be helpful). In addition, leading physicists and theoretically-oriented scientists from related fields will discuss theory and modelling applied to cancer research, and the presence of cancer biologists will facilitate a dialogue between the disciplines.
