Episode 5,  Dec 09, 2022, 10:38 AM

In the fifth episode of the series, Vicky talks to Professor Helen Byrne, Professor of Mathematical Biology at the University of Oxford’s Mathematical Institute, and Senior Group Leader at the Oxford Branch of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research. 

They discuss Professor Byrne’s research which focuses on mathematical modelling and biology, and how modelling can provide predictive tools for growth and response to treatment of solid tumours.

Here, they also cover how the fast-moving field of topological data analysis is informing cancer treatments such as radiotherapy and immunotherapy, and Professor Byrne’s role bridging the divide between mathematics and other fields.
