Envisioning the Future of Radiation Oncology Workshop Kickoff

January 29, 2021 01:30 p.m. - 03:30 p.m. ET

Since 2016, NCI and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) have been collaborating on the Joint Design of Advanced Computing Solutions for Cancer (JDACS4C) program, which has a mission to simultaneously accelerate advances in predictive oncology and computing.

The first in a series of interactive workshops, this presentation will set the stage for the future of computing and artificial intelligence in radiation oncology. These sessions will explore emerging and futuristic opportunities among DOE, NCI, and partner institutions to advance radiation therapy. Essential components include:

  • personalized, adaptive, improved treatment through understanding and development of mechanism-based, computationally enabled modeling; and
  • advanced computing to achieve dynamic, multiscale, data-informed, clinically actionable predictions, and decision making.

The intended outcomes of these workshops are the creation of scope/goals for a potential new NCI-DOE Collaboration project and the development of a whitepaper aimed at driving the future of radiation oncology.
