NIMBioS Seminar Series

In conjunction with the interdisciplinary activities of the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS), a seminar series on topics in mathematical biology will be hosted at NIMBioS every other Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. (unless otherwise noted) in the Hallam Auditorium, Room 206, Claxton Building, 1122 Volunteer Blvd. Seminar speakers will focus on their research initiatives at the interface of mathematics and many areas of the life sciences. Light refreshments will be served in Room 205 beginning 30 minutes before each talk. Faculty and students from across the UT community are welcome to join us.

Time/Date: Tuesday, November 3, 2015, 3:30 p.m.*

Location: Room 206, Claxton Building, 1122 Volunteer Blvd.

Speaker: Dr. Steven Wise, Mathematics, Univ. of Tennessee

Topic: Some mixture models for tissue growth with applications in spatiotemporal cancer modeling

Abstract: In this talk, I will describe some PDE and IPDE models of tissue dynamics, mainly with applications in tumor growth problems. We will examine the details of the model formulations, some issues of well-posedness, and aspects of efficient numerical approximation. Some of the work is a few years old, some is preliminary, but the discussion will at all times be informal.
