Cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid – 2009 Annual Meeting

The 2009 caBIG® (cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid®) Annual Meeting takes place on July 20 – 22, 2009 at the Marriott Wardman Park, Washington DC, USA. Registration is free and open to the public.

For more information and to register, visit: https://cabig.nci.nih.gov/

Research to develop new methods for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer requires tools and technology that connect different types of data, analyze vast amounts of information and enable collaborative research. caBIG® tools and technologies support all aspects of basic and clinical research, connecting data, individuals, and institutions and speeding the translation of discovery to delivery.

The 2009 caBIG® Annual Meeting will feature:

  • Resources to enhance capabilities in the areas of clinical trials management, in vivo imaging, molecular analysis, biospecimen banking and pathology, and data-sharing and security
  • Case studies and best practices from the cancer community
  • Tips on implementing and customizing caBIG® tools and infrastructure, or adapting existing tools and systems to achieve caBIG® compatibility, to solve challenges at your organization
  • Descriptions of caBIG®-enabled translational research projects in cancer and beyond
  • Opportunities for future collaborations and partnerships

caBIG® (cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid®) was launched by the National Cancer Institute to remove obstacles along the continuum of translational research to speed the development and delivery of new approaches to detect, diagnose, treat,  and prevent cancer. caBIG® tools, infrastructure, standards, and policies are currently in use across the cancer and biomedical communities—including at 50 NCI-designated Cancer Centers and 16 sites in the National Community Cancer Centers Program.
