Research Area: Other Exceptional Opportunities

Physical Sciences and Engineering are essential to progress

While the focus in cancer-related research has been on molecular understanding, engineering approaches can enable the handling of large knowledge, its harnessing for detection, diagnoses and therapy as well as aid quality of life for survivors

Submitted by

What is the research problem :

How to turn basic cancer knowledge into useful interventions and durable products that can aid in detection, diagnosis, therapy and quality of life for survivors?

How will your solution make a difference :

Engineering can bring solutions at scale and with a cost efficiency and innovation that can provide increased quality of care at lower cost. This can enable a wider benefit to patients, especially those undeserved by present approaches.

What is your proposed solution :

1. Engineering and technology based Cancer Center

2. Educate engineers in cancer applications

3. Multidisciplinary approaches to cancer problems that engage principles from physical sciences
