My Project: Machine learning approaches to improve prediction of neuropsychological outcome in pediatric cancer groups

• Up to 50% of pediatric cancer survivors experience neuropsychological impairments.
• However, identifying patients who will decline is challenging in a clinical setting, especially of very young children.
• Using new methods (eg, machine learning), we aim to develop a prediction model for an individual child over time, which includes medical, individual, and psychosocial factors.
