MBI Workshop on Treatment, Clinical Trials and Resistance of Cancer
Month: February 2015
Date: February 16--20
Name: MBI Workshop on Treatment, Clinical Trials and Resistance of Cancer
Location: Mathematical Biosciences Institute, The Ohio State University, Jennings Hall 3rd Floor, 1735 Neil Ave., Columbus, Ohio.
This workshop will focus on two broad topics: Mathematical modeling of cancer treatment strategies and how to model resistance of cancers to drug treatments. Use of mathematical models to compare clinical trial arms and virtually simulate clinical trials outcomes. The workshop will highlight modeling applications that are as close as possible to direct clinical impact including design of multi-institutional clinical trials for patient-specific radiation dose strategies, quantification of patient-specific response to treatment that can be useful in predicting outcomes and treatment design, as well as include discussions of sequencing of drug treatments, optimal scheduling, and modeling of combination therapies which are useful in rapidly mutating diseases, such as cancer and HIV. The workshop will also discuss ways to implement the use of mathematical models in a clinical setting.
