"Mathematical models of tumor-immune interactions"
(Lecture/Discussion)

Prof. Avner Friedman, Ohio State University
will give a colloquium talk, the second in the
Department's David Blackwell Memorial Lecture Series on

Abstract: The talk will describe the role the immune system plays in trying to fight cancer. At first the immune system is successful in containing the tumor, but eventually the tumor typically manages to escape the immune system and continues to grow and expand. I shall describe several mathematical models of tumor- immune interactions in terms of ODE systems. Next I will focus on one model breast cancer where immune cells, macrophages, play a critical role, and develop a PDE model with a free boundary. The model suggests therapeutic approach to block tumor growth of breast cancer.
