NYU Courant Researchers Creating Computer Models of How Cancer Develops


Work Aims to Provide Platform for Understanding Disease Progression

Researchers from New York University’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences are developing cutting-edge computer tools to model the development of pancreatic cancer. The creation of such a model will provide a platform for systematically exploring various cancer diagnostics and therapeutics.

The award, a five-year, $1.8 million grant from the National Science Foundation, is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. It is part of a larger $10 million grant from NSF’s Expeditions in Computing initiative that also includes researchers from Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Maryland, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the City 500
