Trachette L. Jackson, Ph.D. is Professor of Mathematics at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI. Her research is in mathematical oncology, where she, together with her collaborators, developed the first cell-based model of tumor-induced angiogenesis. Through this she is able to studying tumor growth and vascular structure at the molecular, cellular, and tissue levels. In this work she combines mathematical modeling, numerical simulation, and in vivo tumor vascularization experimentation.
Dr.Jackson has the Alfred P. Sloan research Award in Mathematics, the James S. McDonnell 21st Century Scientist Award, and the Blackwell-Tapia Prize.
