title: Modeling medical protocols with UPPAAL
keywords: Modeling, UPPAAL, medical protocols
topics: Case studies and Applications
committee: Rom Langerak


It is difficult to reason about medical diagnostic and treatment protocols: they usually consist of many processes, and timing, cost, effectiveness, and uncertainty play a complex role. We are therefore modeling and analyzing such protocols using the timed automata based tool UPPAAL. Examples of past work include treatment of prostate cancer (with BMS), side effects of immunotherapy (with NKI), and tooth wear monitoring (with ACTA).

Assignments (to be formulated in agreement with the interests of the student) may include practical modeling and analysis, theoretical research, and tool development.
