Contemporary people live in a society featured by a continuously increasing complexity. As a consequence, interdisciplinary approaches represent a must for every scientist that aims to efficiently manage a certain problem. Cancer evolution and the associated proper medication strategy is an example of such a complex problem that requires an interdisciplinary approach in order to be properly addressed. The first section addresses some basic aspects regarding how cancer research could benefit from the cooperation between mathematics and biology. The second section of the paper discusses about the cancer modelling at a very basic level and describes a drug medication optimization pattern based on the very well-known model of Fister and Panetta, which is modified in order to increase its readability and predictive capacity.
