III Summer School and Scientific Workshop
(Second  Announcement)

Propriano (Corse) France September  2 - 6,   2002

Focus on Signalling and Cellular Interactions

School Director: Luigi Preziosi

The aim of the summer school is to provide young researchers with an overview of the state-of-the-art and trends on mathematical modelling and analysis of tumor evolution. The school will involve contributions from biologists, mathematicians, and physicists to maximize the interdisciplinary exchange of informations and ideas.

The main goal is the analysis of the relevance of signalling and cellular interactions in physiologic and pathologic conditions.
