Cancer, multicellularity and complex systems

The Royal Physiographic Society had done a proper job of bringing together a broad mix of disciplines and minds and managed to facilitate dedicated and lively discussions despite sometimes lack of a common lingo. This geologist did not expect to have many research questions in common with the field of Cancer evolution. Little did I know and much did I learn. Never have I ever had so many engaging questions after giving a talk. Thanks to the organizers for a well planned and prepared meeting and to all participants for creating an inspiring and inclusive environment reeking of will to learn and ambitions to drive.

Day 1. Day 2

I encourage you to check out all the speakers. This geologist particularly enjoyed the solid hard-core intro to Cancer field including. stress induced mutations and how we can perceive cancer through the lens of evolutionary pathways. As a bonus we got to engage in how we can view evolution in relation to colloidal matter, game theory, evolving robotics and physical and mathematical modeling.
