University at Buffalo Receives Grant for Innovative Cancer Research

Dr. Rachael Hageman Blair, assistant professor in the department of biostatistics at the University at Buffalo SUNY School of Public Health and Health Professions, aims to break new ground in cancer research by developing mathemati­cal models of skin and breast cancer metabolism with a three-year, $185,000 grant from the National Science Foundation’s Division of Mathematical Sciences. According to Dr. Hageman Blair, the project will involve embedding probabilistic graphical models of gene networks into traditional deterministic models of cellular metabolism.
