Under the FoReCaST project we are using agent based modeling approach to study and develop new ways of fighting cancer.

Agent-based modeling (ABM) is a type of computational modeling where the actions and interactions of autonomous agents are simulated to assess their effects on the system as a whole. It combines elements of game theory, complex systems, emergence, computational sociology, multi-agent systems, and evolutionary programming. Monte Carlo methods are used to introduce randomness.
