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

NIH and the National Science Foundation are participating in an interagency funding opportunity that seeks to address technological and data science challenges, which require fundamental research and development of new tools, workflows, and methods. Proposals are due October 3, at 5:00 p.m. (submitter’s local time).

A new machine learning model blends image data with clinical and pathological information to tailor care for patients with breast cancer.

Are you ready to introduce AI into your practice? NCI-funded researchers recently conducted a survey to help shed light on how oncologists feel about using AI in cancer care.

Are you skilled in conceptualizing, developing, and managing projects in clinical research informatics? Apply today to work as a clinical research informatics specialist at NCI’s CBIIT.

Do you conduct research on statistical and analytical methods, cancer survivorship, digital health, and/or data science tools and methods? Apply for an R01 grant from NCI’s Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences by June 5 or October 5, 2024.

What if you could predict how a chemotherapy drug would work—in terms of sensitivity and side-effects—before you ever use it? NCI-funded researchers are using machine learning models to better understand a key mechanism underlying cancer, giving us new ways to predict responses to common chemotherapy drugs.

A new algorithm is showing promising results in predicting lung cancer. See how proteins in your blood may someday help determine your risk for lung cancer.

Do you work with digital twin data models? If so, consider applying by March 21, 2024, for research funding!

The ways that cells interact with neighboring cells and their environments can either regulate or promote how tumors grow and spread. See how a new tool is helping us better understand these important “neighborhood” interactions.
