Como School on Cancer Evolution (CSCE 2023)

CSCE 2023

Cancer is a multi-factorial disease caused by the malfunction of the bio-molecular machinery that regulates the body’s “checks and balances”. This leads to the uncontrolled growth of certain cell subpopulations selected by evolutionary pressure, which ultimately threatens the host’s survival.
In the last 15 years, countless algorithmic, statistical, and mathematical modelling strategies have greatly aided in understanding the disease’s intricacies, especially by leveraging the vast and increasing amounts of omics data generated from cancer samples. Importantly, new experimental paradigms, such as those on patient-derived models are delivering the first exciting results.
In this lively field, the Como School on Cancer Evolution (CSCE 2023) brings together researchers from both dry- and wet-labs to explore the challenges posed by cancer as a an evolutionary disease.
The School will allow the participants to gain expertise on state-of-the-art concepts, methods and applications from both cancer biology and computational sciences, especially data science and artificial intelligence, and to get a glimpse into the vision of pioneers in the field of cancer evolution.

Workshop and School on Cancer Development and Complexity

Workshop and School on Cancer Development and Complexity

Lake Como School of Advanced Studies – May 24-28 2021 
School directors:
  • Marco Antoniotti
    BIMIB, Dipartimento di Informatica, Sistemistica e Comunicazione, Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca, Milan, Italy.
  • Riccardo Bellazzi, Università degli Studi di Pavia, Pavia, Italy.
  • Alex Graudenzi
    Institute of Molecular Bioimaging and Physiology of the Italian National Research Council (IBFM-CNR)
  • Bud Mishra
    Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, and Tandon School of Engineering, NYU, New York, NY, USA.

The Workshop and School on Cancer Development and Complexity seeks to convene researchers from various related disciplines to explore multiple facets of the challenges posed by cancer a “disease of the systems.”

The workshop will provide opportunities for the researchers to exchange new ideas and viewpoints, forge new collaborations and train the next generation of young scientists.

Participants are encouraged to present their work in two sessions and poster presentations that will be held during the workshop.
