Virtual Workshop on Next-Generation Sequencing and Radiomics: Resource Requirements for Acceleration of Clinical Applications Including AI

September 29, 2021 - September 30, 2021
Virtual

The NIH-FDA Joint Leadership Council on Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) and Radiomics Working Group is hosting a virtual workshop to engage the scientific community on ways to accelerate the clinical applications of NGS and radiomics.

Namely, the group intends to address the following topics:

  • Critical resource gaps, particularly as they relate to reference standards, which must be corrected to enable high-quality research, development, validation, and regulatory science in NGS and radiomics
  • Opportunities that support NGS and radiomic tool development and validation (especially tools utilizing artificial intelligence and machine learning)
  • Existing resources that might be leveraged to accelerate growth in NGS and radiomics

NCI presenters include NCI Director, Dr. Ned Sharpless; Associate Director, Cancer Diagnosis Program, Dr. Lyndsay Harris; and Clinical Trials Branch Chief, Cancer Imaging Program, Dr. Lalitha Shankar. CBIIT Director, Dr. Anthony Kerlavage, will provide the keynote presentation on the NCI Cancer Research Data Commons.

Two Requests for Information (RFIs) related to the topics of this workshop have been published. (Responses received prior to the workshop date may be discussed at the event.) Visit the workshop webpage for additional details on the RFIs as well as the workshop agenda and presenter bios.
