This is by far my favorite video that we've made. Help us make it go (retro)viral by sharing with your homies! (insert eternal gratitude here)
In the epic struggle between good and only OK, no one is more misérables than we are. A medical musical for the rest of us!

Guess who is Moffitt's featured postdoc? Our very own +Arturo Araujo 
Our very own Arturo Araujo is the featured postdoc for Moffitt's postdoctoral association. Who can resist the allure of a bow tie wearing mathematical oncologist?

A quick rundown (via tweetcast) of the recent Physical Sciences in Oncology Centers meeting at the NCI last week.  Lots of good science, networking, and uninhibited geeking out.
I just got back from 3 days at the National Cancer Institute for the (final?) meeting of the Physical Science in Oncology Centers. It hopefully isn't the REAL final meeting, but it is the final one as we know the PSOCs, as th...

Waterbears can go without food or water for more than a decade. They can survive temperatures from 0 to above 100°C.

The UK version of the recent article about #IMO. +Alexander Anderson 
a few interesting (small) changes I've noticed so far...
From his fourth-floor window at Tampa’s Moffitt Cancer Center, Robert A Gatenby can look down to where patients stand waiting for valets to retrieve their cars. They have gone through chemotherapy, biopsies, radiation. They are pale, anxious, resolute. Some will live and some will die: a young woman with short hair, clutching her partner’s hand; an older man, alone.

Story
Tagline
A radiation oncologist interested in theoretical modeling of cancer.
Introduction
I approach the understanding of cancer like my original training in physics taught me - from the ground up, using the descriptive language of mathematics.  Using established mathematics in new ways, guided by the principles of evolution, I hope to better understand (and maybe treat!) cancer.  I am a proud member of the Integrated Mathematical Oncology group at the Moffitt Cancer Center and the Centre for Mathematical Biology at Oxford University.

My 4 year old daughter knows the difference between rhyme and alliteration.
