This session focuses on application of mathematical models in cancer treatment and tumor biology. Integrated clinical, biological, and mathematical approaches will be discussed as they apply to tumor models. Results from these models will include optimization of treatment strategies directed at individual tumor features, quantification of evolving subclonal populations linked to therapy resistance, and prediction of treatment response to immunotherapy. Speakers from both academia and pharmaceutical research centers will together discuss emergent opportunities for growth in this field.
