Understanding how cancer initiates, grows and migrates has been a key issue in biomedical research in the last decades. Ideas and methods from physics have been widely applied to biology, but only sporadically to cancer. Promising areas of activity include: mathematical, biophysical and computational models of cancer progression, angiogenesis, metastasis and cancer genomics. The ESF – Exploratory Workshop on the Physics of Cancer brings together researchers from different communities (cancer biologists, applied mathematicians, statistical physicists, theoretical and experimental biophysicists) to discuss ways to tackle cancer from a physics perspective, exploring possibilities to propose “physics of cancer” initiatives in Europe.
