Abstract

We show that as game theory was transferred from mathematical oncology to experimental cancer biology, a new mode of inquiry was created. Modelling was replaced by measuring. The game measured by a game assay can serve as a bridge that allows knowledge to flow backwards from target (cancer research) to source (game theory). Our finding suggests that the conformist and creative (Houkes & Zwart, 2019) types of transfer need to be augmented. We conclude by introducing the expansive and transformative types to get a four-tier typology of knowledge transfer.
