Blood cancer cells

RUC receives 10 million DKK for research on mathematical modelling of blood cancer

Thomas Stiehl will be leading the research project that receives a fellowship of 10 million DKK from The Lundbeck Foundation. The project runs 5 years from January 1st, 2021.

Mathematics Provides More Effective Cancer Treatment

Mathematicians at Roskilde University, in collaboration with hematologists at Zealand University Hospital, have developed mathematical models for how normal blood production, development of blood cancer and inflammation mutually affect each other. In synergy with blood samples from the individual patient, the models can provide a guide for more effective, individualised cancer treatment.

Mathematical model can improve depression diagnosis

Mathematical models can be used to develop new methods to diagnose e.g. depression, and the models can provide important information to help develop better forms of treatment.

Teaching materials for high schools

Researchers from COMMAND have in collaboration with high school teachers prepared teaching materials in mathematical modeling for the high schools. The materials are in Danish and free to download.
