The William E. Schiesser Lecture Series in Computational Approaches to Interdisciplinary Problems in Science and Engineering features Kristin R. Swanson, associate research professor of pathology at the University of Washington, who will discuss the development of mathematical models that are applied to the treatment of individual brain tumor patients, and how they allow for the quantitative prediction of each patient’s response to therapy.

The Schiesser Lecture Series is sponsored by the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science and supported by a fund established by Dolores T. Schiesser. The series is named for William E. Schiesser, professor emeritus of engineering and mathematics.

The lecture begins at 2:30 p.m. in Room B-23 in Iacocca Hall.
