A Journal of the National Cancer Institute article featuring the Swanson Lab as one of the few labs applying mathematical modeling tools to patient-specific data.

“Statistics is well accepted as a tool in designing clinical^{ }trials and in analyzing clinical data. Similarly, mathematical^{ }theory has found applications in oncology; the current use of^{ }dose-dense chemotherapy, for example, arose from mathematical^{ }considerations. (*See* News, Vol. 95, No. 4, p. 254.)

But the goal of the new mathematical oncology is to be able^{ }to model tumors so well that researchers can begin to use computers^{ }to guide treatment on an individual basis. Those working in^{ }the field say that recent successes are beginning to excite^{ }a new interest among physicians in applying math to cancer…”
