Popular science feature article in Aftenposten Viten: Can statistics and mathematics save as many lives as new medicines?

Oslo University Hospital is part of the PERCATHE (Personalised cancer therapies) consortium, aiming to develop new, powerful and frontiers-breaking methods to build an innovative and practicable pipeline for individualised precision treatment of cancer. PERCATHE is one of 14 convergence environments under UiO:Life Science - the largest priority area at UiO.
Consortium members -  OUS and UIO scientists Arnoldo Frigessi, Olav Engebråten,  Vessela Kristensen, Alvaro Köhn Luque and Carl Henrik Gørbitz - have recently published a feature article in the popular science "Knowledge" (Viten) section of the Norwegian major newspaper Aftenposten, entitled "Can statistics and mathematics save as many lives as new medicines?"
