Integrate: to combine one thing with another so that they become a whole

Cancer is a dynamic complex multi-scale system that can only truly be understood via the integration of theory and experiments. The mission of the Integrated Mathematical Oncology (IMO) Department is to use such an integrated approach to better understand cancer initiation, progression and treatment and to aid in the clinical utilization of integrated models in precision medicine. By using a range of mathematical modeling approaches targeted at specific types of cancer, IMO is aiding in the development and testing of new treatment strategies as well as facilitating a deeper understanding of why they fail. This multi-model, multi-scale approach has led to a diverse and rich interdisciplinary environment within IMO, one that is creating many novel approaches for the treatment and understanding cancer. Learn more about Integrated Mathematical Oncology
