CBIIT Director, Tony Kerlavage, discusses his role, CBIIT’s responsibilities and opportunities within the realm of cancer research, and his vision for expanding informatics, IT, collaboration, and data sharing to find treatments, improve outcomes, and make the lives of cancer patients and their families better.

Staff from the National Cancer Institute's (NCI) Center for Biomedical Informatics and Information Technology (CBIIT) provide scientific and business-related reading recommendations they have found to be inspiring or useful throughout their careers.

Just as numerous role models can shape, foster, and guide a child into adulthood, so can the various stakeholders within the broader cancer research community play a pivotal role in the success of data sharing efforts. Your input is critical as NCI seeks to make the most of the federal investment to collect, analyze, and share data to address the burden of cancer in children, adolescents, and young adults.

NCI Acting Director Dr. Doug Lowy welcomes Dr. Tony Kerlavage as the Center for Biomedical Informatics and Information Technology Director.

To the Cancer Informatics Community, As you may know, Dr. George Komatsoulis, Deputy Director of the NCI Center for Biomedical Informatics and Information Technology (CBIIT), will be leaving the NCI on May 2, 2014 to join the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) at the National Library of Medicine, where he will be focusing on Big Data and Precision Medicine.
