Informatics Technology for Cancer Research (ITCR) Tools
Informatics Technology for Cancer Research (ITCR) is a trans-NCI program supporting investigator-initiated, research-driven informatics technology development spanning all aspects of cancer research.
The Center for Strategic Scientific Initiatives (CSSI) coordinates ITCR program activities across four NCI extramural divisions:
- Division of Cancer Biology (DCB)
- Division of Cancer Control and Population Science (DCCPS)
- Division of Cancer Prevention (DCP)
- Division of Cancer Treatment and Diagnosis (DCTD)
Tools in the ITCR portfolio currently support omics, imaging, network biology, clinical research, and data standards. Learn about the wide range of informatics tools and watch introductory videos on the ITCR website.
ITCR Training Network (ITN)
The ITN is an online resource for researchers who want to strengthen their cancer informatics and data science skills. The ITN serves two primary audiences: tool developers and tool users. Tool developers get help creating new tools and improving access to existing ones. Meanwhile, potential tool users can acquire fundamental background knowledge and get familiar with these NCI ITCR-funded tools.
The ITN offers a range of synchronous training events and free online courses featuring tools developed by NCI ITCR investigators. Learners can complete these courses at their own pace and earn certifications. The ITN also provides a platform for tool developers and researchers to create their own courses while promoting community engagement in cancer research.
Learn and collaborate through the ITN to advance your cancer informatics and data science training.
