The Search: Mathematical model explains diversity in cancer cell movement

The Search: Mathematical model explains diversity in cancer cell movement

If cancer cells can’t find the highways of the body, they can’t spread and become more lethal. A mathematical model developed by Andre Levchenko and JinSeok Park of the Yale Systems Biology Institute provides a framework to explain cell migration behavior that can be implemented down the line to keep cells searching longer.
