What do we do?

We develop computational approaches to personalized medicine. We use imaging modalities and computational models to predict growth patterns of cancerous tumors in a patient-specific manner. Our technology can help to develop new and improved diagnostic and prognostic methods for cancer.

A mathematical model of tumor angiogenesis: growth, regression and regrowth, Journal of the Royal Society Interface, 2017

Cancerous tumours have the ability to recruit new blood vessels through a process called angiogenesis. By stimulating vascular growth, tumours get connected to the circulatory system, receive nutrients and open a way to colonize distant organs...

Tissue-scale, personalized modeling and simulation of prostate cancer growth, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2017

We perform a tissue-scale, personalized computer simulation of prostate cancer (PCa) growth in a patient, based on prostatic anatomy extracted from medical images...
