QCDB is online

The Quantitative Cancer Modelling DataBase is now online. This database is designed to store known parameters in order setup quantitative mathematical models of cancer growth and treatment efficacy.

This initiative started from the idea of having a common tool dedicated for parameters storage for the biomathematical community working on cancer growth.

The database is by now empty and you're welcome to contribute. Further explanations on how to do this are provided on the website.

The project

The full title of the project is `Modelling, Mathematical Methods and Computer Simulation of Tumour Growth and Therapy'. It is a Marie Curie Research Training Network. The scope of the project is outlined below:



Develop the complete framework for multiscale modelling of cancer:

  • Mathematical models
  • Numerical algorithms
  • Computer software for simulation
  • From observation to simulation to validation
  • From sub-cellular to macroscopic scales
  • Model the action of specific therapies

Task force

12 international teams:

  • Politecnico di Torino
  • University of Nottingham
  • Universidad Complutense Madrid
  • Université Joseph Fourier
  • Ecole Normale Supérieure
  • University of Dundee
  • University of Witten/Herdecke
