LSU Uses AI to Find Personalized Cancer Cures Quickly
September 20, 2022
An interdisciplinary LSU research team has built a cancer drug discovery engine powered by AI that soon could match any type of cancer, based on a small cell sample from a patient, with the drug most likely to cure that cancer.
“LSU’s work to leverage AI for precision medicine will not only allow us to devise new molecular-driven treatments for every patient, but also allow us to understand how to provide preventative services to patients in rural communities,” said surgical oncologist Dr. John Stewart, director of the LSU Health New Orleans/LCMC Health Cancer Center.
At all levels of higher education and research, LSU facilitates and promotes interdisciplinary research to meet the challenge of improving the health outcomes head-on.
