Evolutionary game theory in cancer
Monday, July 17 at 10:30am
Anuraag Bukkuri, Katerina Stankova
Katerina Stankova and Anuraag Bukkuri are proposing a minisymposium on “Evolutionary game theory in cancer”. We have invited six international early career researchers (those that have not yet completed a PhD or similar) that identify as members of underrepresented groups who are working at the interface between game theory and cancer. Complementing our diverse line-up of speakers, our talks will span a wide range of topics in mathematical oncology: immune evasion and transmissibility, angiogenesis, evolutionarily informed therapies, metastasis, cell competition, and growth models. We hope that this symposium will allow us to shine light on the wonderful work being done by diverse early stage researchers in our community, allow these members to forge connections and gain visibility, and showcase the latest results in the applications of evolutionary game theory to the broader mathematical oncology community.
