About Us

The field of Mathematical NeuroOncology represents a marriage between applied mathematics, clinical oncology, cancer biology, radiology, pathology and informatics to enable practical clinical tools to benefit brain tumor patients.  This site has evolved out of the Swanson Lab (now based at Northwestern University) which has been at the forefront of this field.  As this field grows, we will use this site as a portal for access to works in the Mathematical NeuroOncology field from the Swanson Lab and beyond.
