In recent years, optimization has emerged as a vital component of medical diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment planning. Medicine is an exciting field, not only because of the complex interdisciplinary nature of the research problems, but also because of the immense potential impact of successful solutions. This talk will present sample applications of optimization to medicine. We discuss the problems, the proposed OR models and solution methods, and challenges and opportunities for future research.
