Simulating Cancer Across Length SCALES

Together with Dr Simon Walker-Samuel (UCL Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging), we have established the SCALES (Simulating Cancer Across Length SCALES) research group at UCL, which brings together a team of mathematical modellers, medical imagers, biophysicists and cancer biologists to explore cancer therapies. Specifically, we are using mathematical modelling as a tool to extrapolate between high resolution ex vivo and in vivo imaging, providing a multiscale tool to better understand tumour behaviours and treatment strategies. Our primary focus in on blood flow, drug delivery and immunotherapy predictions, including the role that tissue solid mechanics plays.

Our postdocs and students working in this area include Paul Sweeney, Claire Walsh and Hannah West.

We are very grateful for funding from the Rosetrees Trust.
