Workshop "Complexity matters: New thinking on the old problem of GBM heterogenety in glioblastoma"
Convent of San Pedro Martir, Toledo
Tuesday September 08, 2015 to Wednesday September 09, 2015

Glioblastoma heterogeneity is recognized as one of the reasons of the lack of response or relapse after therapies. Understanding this complexity at the different levels requires the integration of information coming from molecular biology (ohmics), cellular biology/pathology, imaging. Putting together this information into useful models of the disease may open the way for the design of more efficient treatments.

Mathematical models have the potential to integrate all this information into simplified yet useful non-linear representations of the tumor’s behavior that can be later used as in-silico platforms to optimize therapies at the personalized level and/or open the way for the design of more efficient treatments.
