    Lee Curtin
    Informatics Specialist
    Lee joined the lab as a Research Trainee in April 2016 and became a Research Collaborator in January 2017, during his PhD studies. He has since joined full time as an Informatics Specialist. He graduated with a Masters of Mathematics from the University of York, UK and completed his PhD in Mathematical Medicine and Biology at the University of Nottingham, UK in 2019.

    Lee is an advocate for minimal mathematical models that can be applied to gain clinical insight, with the long-term goal of guiding clinical trials, and in turn improving patient survival. Lee works on adapting and applying the Proliferation Invasion Hypoxia Necrosis Angiogenesis (PIHNA) model to suggest mechanistic explanations to clinically observed phenomena. Lee’s data-driven work is focused on survival implications of cystic glioblastoma, as well as the shape of MRI abnormalities.

    In our image-localized biopsy project, Lee is involved in the creation of spatio-temporal mathematical models to study the interactions between glioblastoma subpopulations. Lee is also the organizer of our external speakers and this website.
