Fighting drug-resistant cancers with mathematical modeling

Scientists have made great strides in developing drugs to fight cancer. But some cancers have now become resistant to drug therapies. In this segment we meet researchers from the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida, who are using mathematical modeling to help fight drug-resistant cancers.
