Data Analysis and Survival for Personalised Oncology
Applied Statistics Research Group at the Mathematical Institute Leiden University
At DASPO we conduct high-quality quantitative research on survival analysis and related topics in the field of personalised oncology. We are active in the development of new methodologies for inference on the effectiveness of therapeutic regimens in fighting cancer. Our group is also interested in the correct application and adaptation of existing statistical techniques to an oncology setting.
The research group is active since June 2015, when the first project funded by KIKA started.
DASPO is currently running two research projects financially supported by KIKA. These projects investigate the efficacy of chemotherapy regimens on survival outcome patients affected by osteosarcoma and acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Of particular interest are therapy modifications like delays and dose reductions induced by acute toxicity.
Another research project on personalised treatment for soft tissue sarcoma patients is under development with the financial support of KWF.
DASPO closely collaborates with both national and international renown experts in the fields of medical oncology, clinical trials and biostatistics. DASPO's network provides the clinical expertise and the technical feedback to support all research activities of the group. Current collaborations include
