Can we stop the imaginectomies? (Jacob Scott)
Science Kit for Jacob Scott
Thank you for your interest in some more background information on my career path and TEDMED talk. I have had a strange path that has included astrophysics, nuclear engineering, radiation therapy and now mathematical and theoretical cancer biology. I am attaching a few recent papers that I have written with my colleagues. One describes the new movement in cancer research that includes physical scientists, whom I have dubbed 'Phase i trialists'. A second is an example of the sorts of insights one can gain from a mathematical approach and the third is a new approach my group is taking that I was the catalyst, but not the prime mover for: use of evolutionary game theory in testing putative treatment strategies (in this case for metastatic prostate cancer).
I will also include the links to some of the groups in which I work to give some more flavor of what we do. Thanks for your interest and feel free to contact me with questions!
