Name: Taylor Broome
Title of Project:
A Mathematical Model of Renal Cell Carcinoma
Advisor:
Randolph Coleman
Honors Department: Chemistry

I am using mathematical modeling to examine disease progression in Renal Cell Carcinoma, the most deadly form of kidney cancer. I hope to be able to use my theoretical model to suggest real-world treatments.

I have always been fascinated by cancer, so to be able to have an entire, funded summer in which to conduct my research is amazing.
