Cloud Medical Research and Management System
Presentation from the World Vitiligo Symposium 2011 by Mr. Prem S. Couture.
VRF presents software solution for R&D in skin diseases, such as vitiligo or melanoma.
By Yan Valle July 29, 2011 Firenze - VR Foundation released beta version of Cloud Medical Research And Management system, a bio-IT solution for discovery of correlations between multiple types of medical data for R&D activities at II European Congress of Dermatovenerology in St. Petersburg.
The Cloud MRM enables biotechnology research organizations to efficiently discover unseen correlations between clinical data and gene expression patterns while enabling registration of all relevant medical data in support of downstream development and production of therapeutic proteins for skin diseases, such as vitiligo or melanoma cancer.
The Cloud MRM may also be appealing to big pharma in obtaining aggregated, complex data sets for small-molecule R&D processes; or to biotech companies and CROs with limited resources to develop or maintain in-house R&D software.
The system provides functionalities to facilitate data and biological material handovers among researchers from different countries. Cross analysis of de-identified patient profile data along with blood test analysis, biopsy, gene polymorphysms, and also visual data such as images, MRI, CAT scans allows automated discovery of complex relationships between different parameters causing vitiligo or other skin diseases.
Cloud MRM is hosted on a secure private cloud, easily accessible via Internet through a variety of end-user devices, including iPad or Android tablets.
VR Foundation is a non-profit organization expediting vitiligo research globally. For further details, please email Yan@vrfoundation.org.
