An independent selection panel has chosen a paper by a Mayo group of authors as the best article over a two year period in Mathematical Biosciences. The Bellman Prize, named for journal founder Dr. Richard Bellman, goes to David Dingli, M.D.,Ph.D., Matthew Cascino, Kresimir Josic, Ph.D. (University of Houston); Stephen Russell, M.D., Ph.D., and Zeljko Bajzer, Ph.D., for their paper Mathematical modeling of cancer radiovirotherapy, published in 2006. In fact, the paper proposes and validates the first mathematical model of radiovirotherapy - which predicts the therapeutic outcomes and provides guidance for dosing. This could help future researchers with dosage time windows and a range based on tumor size. For more on the award see the journal site.
