This project aims to generate dense longitudinal data in lung cancer patients undergoing anti-PD1/PDL1 therapy. Mathematical modelling with mechanistic learning algorithms will help decipher the mechanisms underlying the response or resistance to immunotherapy. A better understanding of these mechanisms should help identifying actionable items to increase the efficacy of immune-checkpoint inhibitors.
