The many faces of mathematical modelling in oncology

Abstract:
The application of modelling to solve problems in biology and medicine, and specifically in oncology and radiation therapy, is increasingly established and holds big promise. We provide an overview of the basic concepts of the field and its current state, along with new tools available and future directions for research. We will outline radiobiology models, examples of other anticancer therapy models, multiscale modelling, and we will discuss mechanistic and phenomenological approaches to modelling.
