E8696: Using computers to discover drug targets in Splash 2014 (Nov. 22 - 23, 2014)
Cancer is a really complicated disease. Sometimes drugs that target tumors are very effective -- but often patients become resistant to the drugs they take and their tumors come back. In this class you will try to overcome this drug resistance using your knowledge of biology and computers! We will teach you the basics of a new field called 'Cancer Systems Biology'. Join us to learn how to tackle difficult health problems using engineering!
