<p>Researchers have found a new way to use math to better treat cancer and prevent its relapse.</p>
<p>Using the first mathematical model of its kind, researchers at the University of Waterloo found a way to study the interactions between the immune system and different types of cancer cells.</p>
<p>Using their new model, the researchers found that administering different cancer therapies in a particular sequence could better target cancer stem cells in tumours, potentially leading to more personalized treatments for cancer patients. </p>Tuesday, December 3, 20197699https://uwaterloo.ca/applied-mathematics/news/new-math-model-could-lead-more-personalized-cancer-therapiesProfessor Kirsten Morris elevated to IEEE Fellow

<div class="clearfix">The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has elevated Applied Mathematics Professor Kirsten Morris to the grade of Fellow, effective January 2020. This honour, bestowed “for contributions to control and estimator design for infinite-dimensional systems”, places Professor Morris at the highest grade of membership in the IEEE in recognition of extraordinary achievements and experience. The number of members elevated to this grade each year is less than 0.1% of the voting membership. </div>

<p>The drugs your doctor prescribes to treat your high blood pressure could be more effective if they were best suited for your gender. </p>
<p>In a study using the world’s first computational female kidney model, developed by researchers at the University of Waterloo, high blood pressure medication was shown to be more effective when gender was taken into consideration.</p>Thursday, October 24, 20197699https://uwaterloo.ca/applied-mathematics/news/medication-proves-more-effective-when-prescribed-basedMathematical modelling vital to tackling disease outbreaks

<p>A new computer kidney developed at the University of Waterloo could tell researchers more about the impacts of medicines taken by people who don’t drink enough water. </p>
<p>In a recent study, Waterloo researchers found that the elderly, people with impaired kidney function and those taking a combination of certain drugs need to be extra mindful of their water intake.</p>Monday, October 7, 20197699https://uwaterloo.ca/applied-mathematics/news/computer-kidney-sheds-light-proper-hydrationApplied Mathematics Professor awarded CFI funding
