ACROPOLIS – Research Data Management Platform
Host: Institute of Cancer Sciences
About the event:
ACROPOLIS - Advanced Collaborative Research for Oncology, Platform for Improved Outcomes, Learnings, Insight and Science
Growing healthcare costs and poor patient outcomes is driving increased interest in collaboration to support stratified medicines as a means to deliver targeted, safe and cost effective treatments. Research into stratified medicines is severely curtailed by poor access to high quality patient data and the deluge in associated genetic, molecular and image information.
The innovative ACROPOLIS platform will provide the essential informatics infrastructure to support secure stratified medicine research and collaboration, including data handling, storage, retrieval and analysis services that will acquire, pseudonymise and integrate data from a wide variety of diverse sources.
The ACROPOLIS platform has been developed by a strong consortium led by R&D data management firm IDBS, supported by hosting firm Interoute and leading cancer institutes at King’s Health Partners and Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (The University of Manchester, CRUK Manchester Institute, The Christie and University Hospital South Manchester NHS Foundation Trusts).
Lunch will be provided at 12 noon.
