Simulating the growth of tumor spheroids.

Simulation of simple spheroid growth.

This is a simulation of a growing tumor spheroid.

It illustrates well the minimal ingredients of the spatial cell-based modeling paradigm: cells resolved in space that can move, grow and divide.

The mathematical model behind this simulation represents cells as adhesive visco-elastic spheres and solves the corresponding equation of motion.

The system was constructed in the Weiss Lab (MIT).
