Mathematical Algorithms Reveal New Information About Aggressive Breast Cancer

Kristen Naegle, an assistant professor of Biomedical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis is performing a detailed study of breast cancer cells, and utilizing mathematical approaches to uncover the mechanism for metastasizing in especially aggressive breast cancers like *HER2.

Currently, breast cancer comes in second as the most common type of cancer and the second leading cancer responsible for cancer-related deaths in American women. HER2-positive breast cancer metastasizes aggressively and quickly than other types of breast cancer. In order to understand why this happens, Naegle used data from previous experiments, lab experiments, and algorithms…
