Obesity Induced Colorectal Cancer
Ford, Mauntell

2013, Master of Mathematical Sciences, Ohio State University, Mathematics.
More than 1.4 billion people in the world are overweight or obese [32]. Colorectal cancer takes the lives of 608,000 people each year[32]. It is important to study the negative impact of obesity on the body and population and the etiology of colorectal cancer. My goal was to create a mathematical model that relates obesity and insulin and captures the impact of increasing levels of insulin on the insulin growth factor -1 (IGF-1) pathway. The model is able to predict a risk of colorectal cancer based on a given insulin level.
