Finding the cure for cancer...
Mathematics reveals genetic pattern of tumor growth
The University of California, Irvine
"Using mathematical theory, UC Irvine scientists have shed light on one of cancer's most troubling puzzles - how cancer cells can alter their own genetic makeup to accelerate tumor growth. The discovery shows for the first time why this change occurs, providing insight into how cancerous tumors thrive and a potential foundation for future cancer treatments."
"Mathematical theory can help us understand cancer," said Komarova, associate professor of mathematics at UCI. "If we know what cancer is doing, we might be able to find ways to fight it."
