Background

A European Commission FP7 project to provide proof-of-concept for integrating cancer information using cutting edge technology to provide a unique platform for providing cancer intelligence to the public, patients and cancer healthcare professionals.

The scope of what is called ‘cancer information’ is vast covering everything from patient information to on-line educational tools for clinicians and cutting edge informatic tools for cancer biologists working at the bench. This information is fractured across the virtual world; which means it is less integrated, of lower quality and less accessible to the European community.

Aims

To provide novel ways to turn cancer information into intelligence.

Methods

Cesagen’s input was via membership of the Independent Ethics Committee (IEC).
