The 2021 Reinhart-Heinrich Doctoral Thesis Award goes to Martina Conte with a PhD thesis from the University of the Basque Country (Bilbao, Spain)

Martina Conte defended her PD. Thesis "Mathematical models for glioma growth and migration inside the brain" in 2021 at the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics/Basque Country University, under the advisor of Juan Soler and Luca Gerardo-Giorda (Johannes Kepler University and RICAM, Linz).

The prize goes to Martina Conte for her important contributions to building mathematical theory and integrating it with biological and clinical data to increase understanding of Glioma (brain tumor) growth and migration, potentially leading to new treatments.
