How mathematics is helping to fight cancer

Cancer is the second leading cause of death globally. Mathematicians have joined the fight, developing models to both test cancer drug combinations and understand chemotherapy drug resistance.

Explainer: what is nanomedicine and how can it improve childhood cancer treatment?

Nanoparticles are a form of transport for drugs and can go places drugs wouldn't be able to go on their own. They make drug delivery more targeted, reducing collateral damage to healthy tissues.
