Doron Levy, University of Maryland "Mathematical Oncology: Can Math Cure Leukemia? 
Modern targeted therapies have significantly improved the treatment of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). Yet, most patients are not cured for undetermined reasons. In this talk, Levy shows how mathematical methods can be applied to model the immune response to CML. Along the way, he discusses cancer vaccines, drug resistance, and cancer stem cells. Levy demonstrates how mathematical methods can be used to integrate clinical and experimental data in order to guide treatment options.

The lecture series is sponsored by the Department of Mathematics.
