In this session, we bring together researchers in mathematical oncology to discuss methodologies for translational research in oncology. The advance of clinical data acquisition technologies, such as genome sequencers and new imaging techniques, are providing new opportunities in mathematical oncology. Mathematical modeling and quantitative framework can effectively leverage clinical data to describe various aspects of cancer progression and drug response. Moreover, models calibrated to individual patient data can predict treatment outcome and help design personalized treatment regarding the drug combination, dosage, and scheduling to improve treatment outcome. Here we highlight several applications of mathematical modeling to clinical oncology, including analysis of clinical data and clinical trials designed with mathematical modeling.
