Scientific Interests

Dr. William Hsu's research aims to uncover predictive patterns from longitudinal clinical, imaging and genomic data to improve clinical decision making. His work has primarily contributed to four areas:

  1. Adapting and validating novel decision models to discover optimal strategies for individual patients;
  2. Formalizing literature for treatment selection and experiment planning;
  3. Improving the generalizability of predictive models; and
  4. Developing translational applications towards precision medicine.

These developments are being practically implemented in lung, prostate, brain and breast cancer.
