Mathematical oncologists apply mathematical and computational models to every aspect of cancer biology, from tumor initiation to malignant spread and treatment response. A substantial amount of medical research now focuses on the molecular biology of individual tumors to selectively target pathways involved in tumor progression, leading to careful manipulation of these pathways, and new cell-specific approaches to cancer therapy are now being developed.
Our new short film series 'ShowMe the Maths' doesn't beat about the mathematical bush. It gets right down to it. Down, that is, to the maths, in all its crucial, complex, sometimes incomprehensible (even to other mathematicians) guises. It's what mathematicians do.
The series will feature research in Number Theory, Mathematical Biology and the History of Mathematics, amongst others. First up: Arun Soor.
Mathematicians seek truth, beauty and elegance, in mathematics itself and in our work with researchers studying fundamental questions in a host of other disciplines. We pursue excellence in all aspects of research, teaching and the communication of mathematics.
The education of the mathematicians of the future is at the heart of our mission. Our wide range of courses at undergraduate and graduate level offers an outstanding training in maths and its links to other disciplines.
