Virtual Tumours to Inform Cancer Drug Delivery

Virtual Tumours to Inform Cancer Drug Delivery

Simon Walker-Samuel (UCL Centre for Advanced Biomedical Engineering), Paul Sweeney and Rebecca Shipley have published their work on high-resolution imaging or surgically-resected tumours, combined with mathematical modelling to run computational experiments on therapy delivery.

The technique, named REANIMATE (REAlistic Numerical Image-based Modelling of biologicaAL Tissue substratEs) enables researchers to visualise and interact with large, 3D, virtual models of tumour tissue samples and treat them as living speciments. This will enable scientists to perform complex computational experiments to generate new insights into how individual tumours react to specific treatments.

The study was published in Nature Biomedical Engineering, reported on via the Institute of Healthcare Engineering, the i newspaper and the Daily Mail.
