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