Tailoring cancer treatments to individual patients (Part 1 of 2)

Supercomputers help researchers design cancer models and predict treatments outcomes based on patient-specific conditions Researchers have developed computer models to predict how cancer will progress in a specific individual, based on tissue, cellular and subcellular protein signaling responses. The models can predict how brain tumors (gliomas) will grow with much greater accuracy than previous models. […]
