We are pleased to announce a four-day workshop on  “Mathematical Models of Tumor-Immune System Dynamics” to be held at the University of Sydney, Australia from January 7th  to January 10th , 2013

Recent progress in cancer immunology and the advances in immunotherapy suggest that the immune system plays a fundamental role in host defense against tumor, and could be utilized to prevent or cure cancer. Although theoretical and experimental studies of tumor-immune system  dynamics have a long history, there are still many unanswered questions about the complex interaction mechanisms between the immune system and a growing tumor. Indeed, the multidimensional nature of these complex interactions requires cross-disciplinary approaches to capture more realistic dynamics of the essential biology. Such approaches include combining cancer immunology with mathematics.  This international workshop will provide a joint forum for leading applied mathematicians, biologists and clinicians actively working in the field of cancer immunology in order to exchange ideas, advance the knowledge of research in this field by rising awareness of the available innovative mathematical tools in cancer systems biology, and explore opportunities for collaborative exchange and education between the Asia Pacific, European, African and North American countries

The workshop co-chairs,
Dr. Amina Eladdadi & Dr. Peter Kim
