IMO 1: Targeting Therapy
Targeting Therapy in Cancer
The complexity of cancer requires the application of innovative tools to integrate and interrogate the data that is being produced at different biological scales both experimentally and clinically. Mathematical and computational models are an ideal tool to facilitate this integration. The theme for this 1st workshop is targeting therapy - we specifically chose targeting because this is precisely where we believe that mathematical models can facilitate better treatment. Obvious areas in which we can aid treatment are in terms of drug scheduling, dosing, combination and less obvious surgical resection, adaptive therapy, metastatic regulation and stromally directed treatments.
