Multiscale modelling of glioma growth and treatments
Gliomas, the most common primary brain tumours, are diffusive and highly invasive. The standard treatment for brain tumours consists of a combination of surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Currently, I am developing a multiscale mathematical model for glioma growth using several patient-specific information to assist its treatment planning and delivery.
