From Chalkboard to Bedside: Mathematics to Guide Clinical Oncology Decision Making

MAPTA Presents: From Chalkboard to Bedside : Mathematics to Guide Clinical Oncology Decision Making

12pm – 1pm | R2 Bookout Auditorium & Virtual via Zoom

Presented by:

Heiko Enderling, PhD, FSMB

Professor, Department of Radiation Oncology,

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center

The work of Dr. Heiko Enderling examines the intricate landscape of cancer biology and clinical oncology, emphasizing the crucial quest for optimal treatments. Facing logistical challenges in experimental modeling, his research advocates for a collaborative approach integrating disciplines not traditionally involved in experimental design. The use of mathematical modeling, machine learning, and optimization theory emerges as a promising avenue to decode complex cancer dynamics, enabling the simulation of untested treatment protocols and identification of approaches with the highest likelihood of success.
