Soundbites: An algorithm to tailor cancer treatments

Pamela Becker, a UW professor of medicine (hematology) and a faculty member at the Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine, and Su-In Lee, UW associate professor of computer sciences and engineering and genome sciences, discuss their study.

They are using a machine-learning algorithm to tailor treatments for patients with acute myeloid leukemia. The algorithm was built to predict which drugs are most likely to successfully treat individual cases.
