Cancer Datbase Ppt Tsai Kuschner

  1. 1. Tapping into the Cancer Fighter Collective for Treatment By Cyrus Kuschner and Jukie Tsai
  2. 2.              What's being Developed? <ul><li>Researchers from the Cancer institute of New Jersey, Rutgers University and IBM are designing a vast computerized digital database that contains:  </li></ul><ul><li>     -Information on latest developments in cancer research </li></ul><ul><li>     -Success rates of previous research </li></ul><ul><li>     -Success of various treatments </li></ul><ul><li>     -Over 100,000 samples of cancerous tissue cells    </li></ul><ul><li>                         </li></ul>
  3. 3.               What will the new system allow?  <ul><li>When finished the database will allow doctors to: </li></ul><ul><li>           -Immediately classify their patients' cancer  </li></ul><ul><li>           -See the most effective treatments  </li></ul><ul><li>The database will be a large asset for researchers because it allows multiple slivers of biopsies to be tested at once against constantly updating samples. </li></ul>
  4. 4.   <ul><li>                                        Tissue Microarray </li></ul>
  5. 5. How will it be implemented? <ul><li>-To run a program that quickly compares hundreds of samples against hundreds of thousands of examples requires a large amount of computer power. </li></ul><ul><li>-To allow the program to run IBM has established a World Community Grid. </li></ul><ul><li>-The ultimate hope is that any researcher or hospital will be able to use the program   </li></ul>
