Some impressions from the meeting in Uppsala. Firstly Eva Kisdi and Philip Maini delivered excellent tutorials on Adaptive Dynamics and Pattern Formation respectively. The second day of the meeting offered talks from participants, and it was interesting to see how broad the field of maths biology is in Sweden, ranging from population dynamics to biofilm modelling. Already looking forward to next years meeting to be held in Göteborg.

I'm just back from a 2 week research visit at the Moffitt Cancer Center, where I have been working on cancer modelling, or more specifically, the relation between tissue homeostasis and cancer initiation. At the moment we're trying to develop a model in which we hope to analyse different modes of homeostasis, which in the long run will be used as a starting point for models of cancer.
