Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


We build a population dynamics model of the competition among immune system cells and a generic tumor cells. Then, we apply the theory of optimal control to find the optimal schedule of injection of autologous dendritic cells used as immunotherapeutic agent.
