LSU researchers have 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.
Surgical oncologist Dr. John Stewart, director of the LSU Health New Orleans/LCMC Health Cancer Center said, “LSU’s work to leverage AI for precision medicine will allow us to devise new molecular-driven treatments for every patient.”
An interdisciplinary LSU research team with members in the School of Veterinary Medicine, College of Science, College of Engineering and the Center for Computation & Technology is using artificial intelligence, or AI, to discover personalized cures for cancer more quickly and affordably.
