Jesús Bosque, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Fellow

Member of the lab: December 2023 –

About me: I am a postdoctoral fellow at the b-lab, specializing in the mathematical and computational modeling of biological processes. My research focuses on the modeling of cancer and its treatments. I earned my Ph.D. in December 2022 in the Mathematical Oncology Laboratory (MOLAB) at the University of Castilla-La Mancha, where I continued as a postdoc until November 2023. During my thesis, I utilized positron emission tomography (PET) data from patients and mathematical models to study how energy allocation, temperature, and oxygen availability affect cancer. In my subsequent postdoc, I concentrated on the in silico design of clinical trials. I perceive science as a multidisciplinary and collaborative effort, and I am eager to produce innovative research with real-world impact.

Research Interests: My current research interests involve using mechanistic mathematical modeling and computational tools to gain insight into cutting-edge cancer treatments. Specifically, I am interested in the study of radiopharmaceuticals and photon and proton external beam radiotherapy. This research is always intertwined with real-world data, and therefore, I am keen on collaborating with biology and medicine experimentalists. Moreover, advancements in the effects of ionizing radiation are closely linked to progress in our understanding of cancer biology. For that reason, I am highly interested in basic cancer science, encompassing topics such as tumor vasculature, phenotypic changes, or the interaction with immune cells.
