Mathematical Medicine Develops Tumor Growth Explications and Medical Technology Innovations

Research Project Outline

We clarify the mechanism of cancer morbid growth through mathematical models, and, simultaneously, develop several methods of cancer diagnosis linked with the theory of inverse problems. We study, especially, the process of sub-cell deformation derived from the bio-chemical reactions inside cells in the early stage of invasion via the automatic, computer-assisted modeling based on the mathematical formulas and medical experiments. As applications, prediction of the morbid state, selection of the optimal treatment, creation of new medicines, and automatic cell diagnosis provided with new schemes become practical.
