This research focused on a mathematical model for the administration of a cancer vaccine. This model involves time delays, making it a more difficult optimal control problem to solve. The mathematical model describes the administration of the vaccine along with certain groups of cells affected over time. The model was programmed into a specialized software called the Sparse Optimization Suite which could output a solution. This solution was then analyzed in order to properly describe it.
