Scholarcy highlights

  • We present a hybrid cellular automata–partial differential equation model of moderate complexity to describe the interactions between a growing tumor next to a nutrient source and the immune system of the host organism
  • We present numerical simulations that display behaviors which are qualitatively similar to those exhibited in tumor–immune system interaction experiments
  • The relationship between these different growth regimes and key system parameters is discussed
