A new computational strategy paves the way for more personalized cancer treatment

May 14, 2018

Mathematicians and cancer scientists have found a way to simplify complex biomolecular data about tumors, in principle making it easier to prescribe the appropriate treatment for a specific patient. The digital approach from scientists at the Johns Hopkins University—a computational strategy transforms highly complex information into a simplified format that emphasizes patient-to-patient variation in the […]
