Understanding how cancer initiates, grows and migrates has been a fundamental topic of biomedical research in the past decades and is still the object of intense scientific activity. While traditionally cancer research has relied heavily in the traditional tools of biologists, such as biochemistry and genetics, it is recently becoming apparent that an approach based on physical sciences could provide a new perspective on the problem bringing to the field new ideas and tools. Although contributions to cancer grounded on computational models are starting to emerge, they are mostly ignored by mainstream cancer research. We believe that this is mostly due to language and cultural barriers that could be overcome by suitable initiatives bridging the gap between these different disciplines.
