Keep up with the latest news from the NCI Center for Biomedical Informatics and Information Technology (CBIIT) and the data science communities.

The Childhood Cancer Data Initiative (CCDI) awarded administrative supplements to eight NCI-Designated Cancer Centers, enabling research that leverages the CCDI Data Ecosystem to address scientific questions and create analytical tools for advancing childhood cancer research.

Learn how you can employ NCI’s semantic infrastructure to expand the use of CDISC standards for Real-World Data analysis and the generation of Real-World Evidence.

NCI’s My Pediatric and Adult Rare Tumor Network (MyPART) program recently released a new long-term study, and an array of data resources, to help you in your research on rare cancers.

NIH wants to hear from you! Give your perspective on how to better use Real-World Data in biomedical and behavioral research.

Do you have knowledge, interest, and experience conducting childhood cancer research? NCI’s Childhood Cancer Data Initiative seeks your input to identify opportunities to generate additional research molecular characterization data to accelerate scientific discovery and improve patient care through enhanced data sharing.

You can now access images from patients who participated in Children’s Oncology Group trials and get metadata and accompanying clinical data. The gene panel sequencing data is available through the database of Genotypes and Phenotypes.

This joint NCI and ARPA-H Biomedical Data Fabric Toolbox effort will focus on developing solutions that take data science innovation in the biomedical research community to a new level. Researchers can use simple dashboards to explore data, conduct analyses, and share data across disciplines.
