Development and validation of virtual epithelial cancer models using an integrated modelling and experimental 3D approach

The goal of this project is to use mathematical and experimental modelling of the human prostate applying bioengineering concepts that will lead to virtual cancer models.  The project aims to validate these multi-scale models to delineate biological and pathological avenues in health and diseased tissue and to use these models to test new therapeutic targets and drugs to ultimately lead to improvements in prevention and treatment approaches
