Contract Solicitation to Develop Analytic Software for the NCI Cancer Research Data Commons
If you work for a small business, apply for this contract opportunity to develop commercial analytic tools that integrate NCI’s Cancer Research Data Commons (CRDC) multimodal data.
Through this funding, you can contribute solutions that address unmet challenges of big data analysis not currently provided by existing tools in the CRDC. The CRDC cloud computing infrastructure provides secure access to various data types across scientific domains, allowing researchers to analyze, share, and store results.
If awarded, your work would enhance data analysis capabilities, visualization tools, and data access and sharing platforms to better enable data driven discoveries.
Specifically, you will:
- integrate existing tools widely utilized by the cancer research community with the CRDC through adoption of the Data Commons Framework,
- develop novel tools that incorporate multimodal (e.g., omics, imaging, spatial omics) datasets, and
- collaborate with academic developers of popular tools to incorporate the tools within the CRDC and support commercialization.
The NCI Small Business Innovation Research Development Center, which supports small businesses across the U.S. to develop innovative cancer technologies, intends to award 3-5 contracts.
