Description: Thomas Yankeelov is the director of the Center for Computational Oncology at The University of Texas, where he also leads a lab group dedicated to mathematical oncology. Learn more about the CCO center and it's other members here.

The vision for the Center for Computational Oncology (CCO) is to develop biophysical models of tumor initiation, growth, invasion, and metastasis to establish a sound theoretical framework describing the hallmarks of cancer, and to use this knowledge to discover fundamental cancer biology, and develop tumor forecasting methods to optimize treatment and outcomes for the individual patient.
