Modelling aspects of tumour growth and progression

This talk will survey a number of different modelling approaches that 
we have recently taken to investigate aspects of tumour growth. The 
approaches range from simple ordinary differential equation models, to 
partial differential equation models and hybrid cellular automaton and
discrete-cell-based type models. Applications will include 
colorectal cancer growth, acid-mediated tumour progression, and possible 
therapeutic implications.
