ITCR Session at the AACR Annual Meeting – 
Tuesday, April 19, 2016 @ 04:00 pm EDT — Tuesday, April 19, 2016 @ 06:00 pm EDT
Room 352, Morial Convention Center
Session Description: Over the last decade, major advances in biology and medicine coupled with innovations in information technology have led to an explosive growth of biological and biomedical information. From the genomic revolution and many of its manifestations to developments in high-throughput, high-content screening, biomedical scientists have never before been exposed to research data that are so rich and comprehensive, and yet so massive and complex. This situation provides unprecedented opportunities for rapid discovery. At the same time, it confronts researchers, from bench biologists to clinicians, with significant challenges to access data, analyze data, and ultimately transform discovery into new knowledge and clinical practice. These critical needs form the basis of the NCI Informatics Technology for Cancer Research (ITCR) Program whose scope serves informatics needs that span the cancer research continuum. This session will highlight several informatics resources developed and supported through the ITCR program, demonstrating their impact on biomarker discovery; outcome prediction and treatment decision support; and the development of new therapeutic regimens, including target identification, agent screening, and clinical trials. Each of these topics will be presented by researchers in the field who will describe how they are using ITCR resources to support their work, highlighting success stories that demonstrate the importance of these informatics tools to their research. Speakers will also describe challenges and unmet needs that represent informatics priorities for the future.
