Reporting from Lyon

Still in Lyon after attending the cancer modeling workshop mentioned in my previous post.

From a couple of very brief escapades, Lyon seems to be quite a pleasant town but the workshop has been interesting enough that I didn't had a lot of time for tourism. Nice talks from the likes of Philip Maini from Oxford and Vito Quaranta from Nashville and chats with Benjamin Ribba from Lyon have kept me entertained. The word from modelers: multiscale modeling. Lots of researchers producing models studying cancer at all sorts of scales from molecular to tissue and from seconds to years and we still have not got the way to integrate them.

Tomorrow back to Dresden
