November 20 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

A geometrically-exact beam is a nonlinear field-theoretic model for elongated elastic objects. It utilizes moving frames to reduce the number of system’s independent spatial variables, which is a further development of Euler’s approach to the rotational dynamics of rigid bodies.…

Renee Brady, NC State, Forecasting Cancer: Predicting Individual Responses to Intermittent Androgen Deprivation Therapy in Prostate Cancer

November 21 | 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm EST

Intermittent androgen deprivation therapy (IADT) is an attractive treatment approach for biochemically recurrent prostate cancer (PCa), whereby cycling treatment on and off has been shown to limit toxicities and reduce cumulative dose. While IADT has been shown to delay the…
