Employees can bring any
health-related questions to the session. Examples may include: questions
related to their medications, illnesses/diseases (for example diabetes,
hypertension, etc), treatments. Employees will also have the opportunity
to meet individually with the graduate students (RNs).

Dr. Helen Moore, Principal Scientist at AstraZeneca, will informally meet with students and faculty.
Immunotherapies don't work for many cancer patients; but when
they do work, they can work extremely well. So it is important to figure out as
early as possible if a patient will be a "responder" or a
"non-responder": I will present a simple mathematical model of tumor
dynamics I used for tumor size data from patients. I combined the model
parameters with a machine learning technique to create an early predictor of
response/non-response. I will show how I validated the predictor on data sets
for different cancer types and immunotherapies.

Combination regimens are increasingly important as we try to
combat resistance in viral diseases and cancer. How much better could
patient outcomes be if we used the same drugs but changed their doses or
schedules? With a mathematical model for the disease-therapy dynamics, we can
apply optimal control to predict the regimen that will perform the best
according a specified goal. I will explain the basic ideas of optimal control
using some examples, and will discuss some of the challenges of math modeling
in the biopharma industry.
