Imaging Biomarkers in Glioblastoma Glioblastoma is the most frequent and aggressive primary brain tumor. We study glioblastoma morphology in medical images to predict survival and personalize treatments. Learn More > Big data and biomarker design Many data provided by the different ‘omics’ technologies are available in cancer. We try to find quantifiers of tumor properties that can be used as biomarkers of clinical applicability. Learn More > Mathematics and brain metastasis Brain metastases are cancer cells that spread to the brain from other organs. We use mathematics to find biomarkers of survival and response to radio-surgery and design optimized treatments. Learn More > Optimizing therapies "in-silico" Gliomas are the most common class of brain tumors. We use human data and mathematical methods to find treatment schedules and combinations improving survival. Learn More > Biomarkers in diabetes and applications Diabetes constitutes a major health problem with increasing incidence. We use mathematics to design biomarkers of utility for improving diabetes diagnosis and followup. Learn More > PET-based Biomarkers in cancer Positron-emission tomography (PET) is an imaging technique showing tumor metabolism. We use PET images and mathematical algorithms to define measures of tumor aggressiveness. Learn More > Mathematics of cancer models Mathematical models may describe processes of relevance in cancer research. We study their theoretical properties to understand their potential utility. Learn More > Mathematics againstresistances Resistance to chemotherapy is a major cause of cancer treatment failure. Mathematical models can describe how resistances develop and provide strategies to defer them the most. Learn More > Mathematics and the tumor microenvironment Models of human tumors are used in biomedical research to resemble their complex behavior. We use mathematical models to understand the tumor microenvironment in-vivo and in-vitro. Learn More > Scaling laws and fractals in cancer We study fractals and scaling laws in cancer data to find regularities behind the observed phenomena and define metrics of utility for cancer treatments. Learn More > Immunity andimmunotherapies The immune system is the complex set of biological defenses fighting infections and other diseases. We develop mathematical models of the immune system and immunotherapies. Learn More > Mathematics andradiation therapy Radiation therapy uses high doses of radiation to kill cancer cells. We use mathematical models to study how to best deliver radiation therapy and combine it with other treatments. Learn More > Mathematics of cancermetabolism Normal cells obtain their energy by oxidation of glucose. Cancer cells use a less efficient way: glycolysis. Mathematical models may help in understanding cancer cell metabolism and finding novel targets. Learn More > Mathematics against leukemias Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemias are the type of cancer with the highest incidence in children. We use mathematical models to improve patient classification schemes and therapeutical combinations. Learn More > Hyperspectral imagingin gliomas Identifying the precise boundaries of brain tumors for their resection is sometimes a difficult task even for skilled neurosurgeons. We collaborate with the HELICoiD project to discriminate between normal and cancerous tissues in real time using hyperspectral imaging. Learn More >
