compsyscan22 : A complex systems approach to cancer understanding
Cancer is a multifactorial disease, with causes ranging from molecular events to the life style, and subtle interactions among those. It originates from the very intimacy of multicellular living systems, and requires a multidisciplinary effort to be understood and, ultimately, defeated.
The aim of our conference will be to gather biologists, philosophers of science, mathematicians, systems biologists, sociologists, medical doctors to name but a few, to foster a broad interdisciplinary conversation about the multifaceted nature of Cancer.
This conference is a joint effort between
- BioSyL the systems biology federation of Lyon
- IXXI, the Rhône-Alpes complex sytems institute
- PLASCAN, the François Rabelais Institute for Multidisciplinary Cancer Research
It is co-organized by
Marc Billaud (Plascan)
Sara Franceschelli (IXXI)
Olivier Gandrillon (BioSyL, IXXI)
Sophie Gomez (Plascan)
Pierre Sujobert (Plascan)
Speakers (tentative list)
Daniel J. Nicholson
