Ellen Swanson

TSP Research Scientist II

Ellen joined Metrum Research Group in July 2023. She earned her PhD in Applied Mathematics from North Carolina State University in 2010. Continuing her research on the deposition of materials on thin liquid films, she completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Carnegie Mellon University in the Center for Nonlinear Analysis and in collaboration with the Interfacial Physics Group. She then transitioned to a more teaching focused role where she became interested in mathematically modeling cancer development and treatments. She is excited to expand on that knowledge and aid in the advancement of treatment options.

Open-Science Immuno-Oncology QSP Modeling Using Open-Source Julia Solvers

July 28, 2023

As Julia usage continues to grow within regulated biomedical environments, it is vital to ensure analyses are traceable and reproducible. Conducting analyses in an open-science manner is also critical to expand the adoption of Julia and to facilitate the infrastructure growth of Julia as an accessible ecosystem. A step-by-step model-building example of a classic monoclonal antibody-drug conjugate PBPK/tumor dynamics system illustrates how to develop such a reproducible open-science framework.
