ITM Investigator Fights Cancer with Big Data

EdTech featured ITM investigator Robert Grossman, PhD, for his work using big data to help fight cancer. Grossman leads the Genomic Data Commons, an open-access repository of cancer data, and is using this information to help drive new discoveries and treatments for patients.

“[Cancer researchers] want to use all available data but to set up an environment, to manage it, keep it secure and compliant — the process is just overwhelming. Our role is to bring together the large public research data sets to consistently analyze them and make it available in a digestible form to the research community to accelerate the pace of research.”

– Robert Grossman, PhD, Principal Investigator of the Genomic Data Commons
