Cancer Treatment through Mathematics

Developments in cancer treatment are being advanced through new technologies brought together by the combination of genomics and mathematics.


Professor Terry Speed of the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute will be delivering his findings at the Australian Academy of Science’s Symposium held in Canberra tomorrow.

Professor Speed explained that with the current advances in genomics and the mathematical sciences, things are looking up for cancer diagnosis, prognosis and treatment. By giving researchers a far better understanding of tumour genomes, the identification of different types of tumours allows for more accurate prognosis and more ‘personalised medicine’ – using a specific treatment for a specific type of cancer.
