Using mathematics to understand, treat, and avoid hematological disease

Abstract

In this talk I describe work directed at understanding the origin of periodic hematological diseases, and how the mathematical modeling has led to better treatment strategies. I will also describe how our mathematical modeling may be useful in helping to avoid the hematological side effects of chemotherapy
