AACR Annual Meeting 2021: Week 1 NCI Data Science Event Sessions and Posters
With the multitude of sessions available in this year’s virtual American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting, we’d like to help you find and build your itinerary of NCI’s data science and data sharing presentations!
If you are attending Week 1 (April 9-15) of the 2021 AACR Annual Meeting, we invite you to attend the following events from NCI programs such as the Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC), the Informatics Technology for Cancer Research (ITCR) program, and NCI Cancer Research Data Commons (CRDC):
On Demand Sessions (April 9, 2021)
- Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning in Cancer Research and Care: Progress and Challenges | Instead of diving into how artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) is applied in specific projects, ITCR investigators will use examples to highlight some of the cross-cutting challenges of employing AI/ML in discovery research and clinical development as well as their adoption in patient care. Please note that the presenters will participate in a panel at 3:30 p.m. on April 14, 2021.
- Computational Methods for Immunogenomics and Precision Oncology | This session will present fundamental concepts and cutting-edge developments in computational approaches for immunogenomics and their applications in clinical cancer research. Please note that ITCR investigators will participate in a panel at 1:30 p.m. on April 13, 2021.
Poster Sessions (April 10, 2021, beginning at 8:30 a.m.)
- Integrative genomics reveals lncRNAs associated with pediatric cancer | This poster will illustrate how the data collected from an integrative genomics study serve as a robust resource for future hypothesis-driven mechanistic studies.
- NCI Office of Cancer Genomics: Multidisciplinary genomic research initiatives drive discoveries towards the clinic | This poster will share the innovative and complementary initiatives that characterize and generate genomic data sets, develop bioinformatics tools, and identify the underlying etiology of cancer.
- The Cancer Genomics Cloud: A secure and scalable cloud-based platform to access, share, and analyze multi-omics data sets | This poster will provide an overview of the Cancer Genomics Cloud (CGC), powered by Seven Bridges. As an NCI Cloud Resource within the CRDC, the CGC provides access and online tools to analyze large cancer data sets, including The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and CPTAC.
The discovery doesn’t end here. NCI will return with more data science presentations and discussions during Week 2 (May 17-21) of the 2021 AACR Annual Meeting.
