Applied Maths Seminar: Maini -- Modelling solid tumour growth

In this talk, we consider a number of examples of modelling in solid tumour growth: (i)
a model for the cell population dynamics in the colonic crypt, incorporating
age-structure and feedback, and investigate how mutations can lead to carcinoma; (ii) a
very simple model to study the mechanisms underlying the oscillatory nature of hypoxia
and acidosis; (iii) a mathematical model for hypoxia-induced quiescience; (iv) a
multi-scale model for vascular tumour growth.
