Russell Rockne, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computational and Quantitative Medicine within Beckman Research Institute of City of Hope. He also serves as director of the Division of Mathematical Oncology, with the goal of translating mathematics, physics and evolution-based research to clinical care.
The division, a part of the Irell & Manella Graduate School of Biological Sciences and the Beckman Research Institute of City of Hope, uniquely combines clinical care, scientific research and mathematical expertise to enhance the overall understanding of cancer development, growth, evolution and reaction to treatment. This work ultimately helps the care team to predict, control and thwart malignancy on both a global scale by improving evidence-based standards of care and an individual level by personalizing treatment using quantifiable patient and disease factors.
