About the Author

Marek Kimmel is a Professor of Statistics at Rice University. Professor Kimmel's research focuses on probabilistic modeling and statistical analysis in biosciences. He is particularly interested in applications of his work in cell and molecular biology and in cancer research. From the mathematical point of view, his interests lie in Markov and branching processes and in estimation theory. David Axelrod is a Professor at Rutgers University, where he works in a laboratory focusing on the heterogeneity and progression of human breast cancers using methods of molecular biology, cell biology, computer simulation, and mathematical modeling.
