Cancer can give you Maths!

Professor Philip Maini

Verbal reasoning alone cannot be used to understand the outcome of the complex interactions that typically comprise biological function, so more and more researchers are turning to mathematical and computational modelling to gain insights on experimental results. Some approaches and advances will be illustrated concerning understanding the basic dynamics of solid tumour growth.

This is the 2008 joint London Mathematical Society / Gresham College lecture.
The other lectures held in collaboration with the London Mathematical Society include:
    Mathematics: The Next Generation by Professor Peter Cameron
    Home Office Mathematics by Professor Bernard Silverman
    Undecidable and Decidable Problems in Mathematics by Professor Angus MacIntyre
    Indra's Pearls: Geometry and Symmetry by Professor Caroline Series
    Mathematics and Smallpox by Professor Tom Körner
    Multiplying and Dividing by Whole Numbers by Professor Timothy Gowers
    Can maths catch criminals and bring them to justice?    by Professor Christopher Budd
