3d modeling of tumor growth
This paper briefly describes a numerical model of avascular solid tumors that has recently been developed in Trieste and Verona. The model includes a mathematical description of the cell metabolism and of the cell cycle and includes the cells’ biomechanics. The model has been successfully validated with experimental data. The resulting software may be to used to perform in-silico tests, and can be further upgraded in a modular way.
