Mohammad Kohandel is an Associate Professor at the Department of Applied Mathematics of the University of Waterloo. He is also a member of the Biomedical Research Group (Department of Applied Mathematics, University of Waterloo) and the Center for Mathematical Medicine at Fields Institute (Toronto). His group is currently focused to effectively develop "experimentally validated" theoretical and computational models to gain a more fundamental understanding of the complex processes of cancer.
Research Interests: Mathematical Biology and Medicine, Biological Physics, Cancer Modeling, and Numerical Simulations.
We have recently developed an integrative cancer biology laboratory, which is the first of its kind to be based in a mathematics faculty. The laboratory will help to gain a more fundamental understanding of the complex processes of cancer by integrating experimental studies and quantitative approaches.
