Goal

Apply the Systems Engineering Process to the development of a Targeted, Effective and Efficient, Systematic Treatment Methodology (STM). The STM will provide the framework that consolidates and integrates the pieces of the cancer puzzle. It will facilitate the development of methodical and personalized treatments and cures for cancer and produce a Clinically Applicable STM that will we used to treat and cure people suffering from Cancer.

In The News

The KressWorks Foundation had it's 2014 Holiday Fundraiser at Ruth's Chris Steak House in Troy Michigan.  It was quite a success. Here is the presentation material.

Dr. James Kress was interviewed by Alisa Zee on WOMC 104.3 on November 9, 2014.

The KressWorks Foundation is featured in the Nov 6, 2014 issue of the Northville Observer and Eccentric. Detroit's Premier Business Magazine has published some great articles about the KressWorks Foundation in their Sept 8, 2014 and Oct 13, 2014 issues.

Current Projects

A STM for Ewing's Sarcoma

Our primary current project is the development of a STM for Ewing's Sarcoma. We are developing the Disease Progression Model necessary for STM implementation.

Determining the Mechanism of Chromosomal Translocations

Chromosomal Translocations play a primary role in the occurrence of Ewing's Sarcoma and many other forms of Cancer. We are providing insight into this poorly understood process.

Recent Successes

First to design a Systematic Treatment Methodology (STM). The STM is a combination of Systems Engineering mathematical computer modeling and clinical measurements, which will provide a Targeted, Effective and Efficient methodology for treating Disease.

First to undertake the development of a Disease Progression Model (DPM) for Ewing's Sarcoma, starting with the first PhysioMap of Ewing's.

First to successfully simulate Double Strand DNA breakage process, the initial step in Chromosomal Translocation.
