The key role of physical and mechanical interactions in cancer emerges from a very large variety of data sources and methods - from genomics to bioimaging, from proteomics to clinical records. Thus, learning physics-driven relational information is crucial to characterize its progression at different scales.

In this talk I will discuss how mathematical and computational tools allow for learning  and better understanding of  the mechano-biology of cancer thanks to the integration of  patient-specific data and physics-based models. I will present a few applications developed in the last decade in which the development of  digital twins,  empowered by ad-hoc learning tools,  allows us to test new hypotheses,  to assess the model predictions against biological and clinical data, and to aid decision-making in a clinical setting.
