Kickoff: eCPC flagship project – May 9-10, 2012

By WebmasterEvent

The Complex Diseases and Data Management communites of SeRC are hosting a kickoff for the SeRC flagship project – e-Science for Cancer Prevention and Cure (eCPC). eCPC integrates the SeRC communities Data Management (DM), Complex Diseases (COM) and Distributed an Parallel Technologies (DPT) with the objective to apply eScience technologies to model cancer initiation and progression, and to enable scientists to test prevention and cure strategies in silico and on real data. The project requires, and will establish, an interoperable data- and computational infrastructure, addressing issues such as data interoperability, security, and privacy. eCPC currently consists of five work packages:

WP1: Platform and infrastructure development
WP2: Handling sensitive data in distributed environments
WP3: Cancer Microsimulation
WP4: Cancer systems biology
WP5: Prediction and screening models

Dates: May 9-10 2012 (lunch-lunch)
Venue: Sandhamn Seglarhotell

The kickoff program will feature presentations from each work package, as well as general discussions, planning, and social activities.

Welcome!
