Expert's Biography:
David Axelrod focuses primarily on the heterogeneity and instability of cancer cells. The goal is to improve cancer diagnosis, prognosis and to guide therapy. Methods of molecular biology, cell biology, computer simulation and mathematical modeling are used in his research.

Currently, he is studying the heterogeneity and progression of human breast cancers. Clinical specimens are being analyzed as well as clonal populations of established cell lines and short term cultures of cells from fresh biopsy specimens. In addition, he focuses on the regulation of tumor cell proliferation by signal transduction pathways, which is being studied with computer models that use cellular automata to describe the biochemical components of the pathways.
