The ConcraCancrum Workshop
This year the 4th International Αdvanced Research Workshop on In Silico Oncology and Cancer Investigation will also be the Contra Cancrum Workshop.
The European Commission funded ContraCancrum project ( http://www.contracancrum.eu/) aims at developing a composite multilevel platform for simulating malignant tumour development and tumour and normal tissue response to therapeutic modalities and treatment schedules in order to optimise the disease treatment procedure in the patient's individualized context.
The project aims at having an impact primarily in:
a. The better understanding of the natural phenomenon of cancer at different levels of biocomplexity and most importantly
b. The disease treatment optimization procedure in the patient's individualized context by simulating the response to various therapeutic regimens.
