NBC features Yankeelov cancer prediction research

Dr. Yankeelov describes his tumor forecasting research on KXAN's March 31, 2017 news program.

ICES Professor Thomas Yankeelov was featured on the local NBC affiliate KXAN's news program where he explained his work to "forecast" cancer behavior.

Using the analogy of meteorologists' mathematical formulas to predict weather, Yankeelov described the pursuit of similar mathematical equations to predict how cancer tumors grow or respond to treatment.

“In the neighborhood of three to five years we’ll have an idea of whether or not this is going to make a real difference,” said Dr. Yankeelov.
