Cutting-edge 3-D models advance cancer research

Posted: Feb 17, 2010 | 4 min 40 sec

Dr. Timothy Newman, director of the ASU Center for Biological Physics, has developed the Subcellular Element Model (SEM), which is an algorithm designed to simulate large multicellular systems, with special attention to the 3-D nature of cell deformations and biomechanics. The SEM was originally designed for studying developing embryos to look at the growth of tumors in 3-D. Embryos apply to cancer tumor research because they share the feature of emergent properties arising from a large number of strongly interacting cells.

The Center for the Convergence of Physical Science and Cancer Biology at ASU is one of 12 Physical Sciences-Oncology Centers nationwide established by the National Institutes of Health’s National Cancer Institute.

Each center is committed to using insights from the physical sciences and engineering to bring a radical new approach to cancer research with the goal of developing new methods of arresting tumor growth and combating metastasis.
