DataViz + Cancer Microlab: How Can Interactive Media Help Advance Brain Cancer Research?

October 03, 2022 12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. ET

NCI’s Cancer MoonshotSM is aimed at exploring new and better ways of advancing cancer research. Attend this online lab and see how NCI is pushing boundaries using technologies, such as interactive media and gaming, to aid in brain tumor research.

The speakers include Dr. Eric Holland, a specialist in brain tumor research and treatment, and Dr. Benjamin Stokes, an expert in interactive media and game design.

This lab is part of a series of 90-minute microlabs presented by NCI. Each lab features insightful conversations between leaders in cancer research (such as cell and development biologists, systems biologists, and microscopy and imaging experts) along with experts in data visualization, game design, and information science. By blending voices from these two distinct and creative fields, NCI seeks to explore new ways of visualizing cancer data and expanding scientific discovery in cancer research.
