New computer model simulates the metabolism of cancer cells

July 3, 2019


Researchers from the Life Sciences Research Unit (LSRU) of the University of Luxembourg have developed a computer model that simulates the metabolism of cancer cells. They used the program to investigate how combinations of drugs could be used more effectively to stop tumor growth. The biologists now published their findings in the scientific journal EBioMedicine of the prestigious Lancet group.

The metabolism of cancer cells is optimized to enable fast growth of tumors.
