Big data takes aim at pediatric cancer

A major project using big data and analytics is underway to advance treatment of pediatric cancer, initially focusing on brain tumors.

The initiative supports the Obama Administration’s Precision Medicine Initiative to accelerate disease research and disseminate treatment findings to physicians.

“We need radically new ways to empower pediatric researchers around the world to share their data and collaborate in discovery,” says Adam Resnick, PhD, founding director at the Center for Data Driven Discovery in Biomedicine at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

The hospital is hosting Cavatica, a new cloud-based analytics platform to store, share and analyze huge amounts genomic data of pediatric cancer patients. The hospital now is developing Cavatica with biomedical data analysis company Seven Bridges and expects a soft launch soon followed by a full launch during the second quarter of 2016.;
