Excerpt: The biology of cancer is a complex interplay of many underlying processes, taking place at different scales both in space and time. A variety of theoretical models have been developed, which enable one to study certain components of the cancerous growth process. However, most previous approaches only focus on specific aspects of tumour development, largely ignoring the influence of the evolving tumour environment. In this paper, we present an integrative framework to simulate tumour growth, including those model components that are considered to be of major importance. We start by addressing issues at the tissue level, (...).
