The Contra Cancrum project aims at developing a composite multilevel platform for simulating malignant tumour development and tumour and normal tissue response to therapeutic modalities and treatment schedules in order to optimise the disease treatment procedure in the patient's individualized context. The project aims at having an impact primarily in: the better understanding of the natural phenomenon of cancer at different levels of biocomplexity and most importantly in the disease treatment optimization procedure in the patient's individualized context by simulating the response to various therapeutic regimens.
