"The study of complex biosystems has become a grand-challenge in basic and applied sciences. TCMP has been established as an interdisciplinary multi-institutional joint-effort in order to study highly malignant brain tumors as complex dynamic self-organizing and adaptive biosystems. TCMP uses methods from various disciplines such as tumor biology, bioengineering, materials science, mathematical biology, nonlinear physics as well as computational and complex systems science. The goal of this innovative research project is to improve the understanding of tumorigenesis and to develop novel treatment strategies against this yet devastating disease."
