Office of Data Sharing Director
As the director of NCI’s Office of Data Sharing, my team and I lead NCI’s approach to the development and implementation of data sharing and public access policies to NCI’s mission. To better advise NCI programs and leadership on cancer data policy matters that are significant to the larger research community, I serve on several NIH, federal, and international advisory committees. Currently, I am the co-lead of the Data Use and Research Identity (DURI) workstream for the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH).

In the News
In the NewsCBIIT Director, Dr. Tony Kerlavage, along with NCI staff and a host of experts in childhood cancer research, recently published an article, “Cancer Informatics for Cancer Centers (CI4CC): Scientific Drivers for Informatics, Data Science, and Care in Pediatric, Adolescent, and Young Adult (AYA) Cancer,” in JCO Cancer Clinical Informatics. The article summarizes the Fall 2020 CI4CC Symposium and showcases the scope of initiatives underway to address childhood cancer, with a particular emphasis on how data science and informatics are helping to support these initiatives.NCI Director Dr. Ned Sharpless shared an update on the Childhood Cancer Data Initiative (CCDI) and how it is leveraging data science and data sharing to rapidly improve treatments for childhood, adolescent, and young adult cancers.The NCI Cancer Research Data Commons (CRDC) is joining the ranks of the 23 international Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) driver projects. As a driver project, the CRDC will bring real-world data and experiences to guide the development of data sharing tools and standards.
