My research lab has served to pioneer the burgeoning field of Mathematical Neuro-oncology generating excellent data to support new approaches to personalize treatment choices and thus improve the lives of brain cancer patients. We achieve this through the development of patient-specific mathematical models ideally applied to routinely acquired clinical imaging data to generate accurate predictions of disease course and response to therapy in individual patients that can be used inform novel therapy design.
