Paediatric cancer is rare. This means that no one hospital and no one research center in the world has enough data on a specific cancer type or subtype to perform meaningful research.
iPC is an EU-funded research project addressing the need to gather, harmonize, and share high-quality, multi-disciplinary paediatric cancer data. Making these resources easily findable and broadly available will support a wide community of cancer research experts in creating effective personalised therapies for kids with cancer.
To this end, the consortium is building a cloud-based data catalogue portal for storing, analysing, and disseminating data relevant for paediatric cancer research. The catalogue will list existing datasets available in other repositories and will also enable users to upload their own data. This connected data infrastructure will simplify sharing of resources from multiple locations and will make data work better for researchers and clinicians around the globe.
In this hands-on training session, Barcelona Supercomputing Center will show how the data catalogue portal can support paediatric cancer research.
The iPC project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 826121.
