Zoom Meeting ID: 935 7955 4655 Passcode: MAE

MAE Faculty Host: Warren Dixon

I will talk about the three main areas of my research: predicting patient response to immunotherapy, assessing systems model predictions, and optimizing combination drug regimens. I will focus on how the mathematical modeling can be used to extract additional information from data. I will also mention an open postdoctoral position I have for applied optimal control. More information about the position is attached.

Dr. Helen Moore graduated from the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She received her PhD in mathematics in 1995 from Stony Brook University in New York. Her original work in differential geometry focused on shapes that minimize volume under certain constraints. While in academia, she won two teaching awards and received a National Science Foundation grant for her research. At Stanford University, she began collaborating with faculty in the medical school, and shifted her use of optimization techniques to apply them to therapies for cancer, HIV, and hepatitis C.
