Erasmus and Windber To Integrate Data

NEW YORK, Feb. 6 (GenomeWeb News) - Rotterdam-based Erasmus University Medical Center and Pennsylvania-based Windber Research Institute will develop a translational medicine data warehousing solution for clinical, imaging and proteomic and genomic data, WRI announced today.

 

The combined warehouse will run on Oracle and InforSense technologies, WRI said in a statement.

 

WRI has a databank housing more than 19,000 breast disease samples as part of an existing relationship with Walter Reed's clinical breast care program.

 

Erasmus MC uses Affymetrix microarrays in many disease research areas, including pediatric and geriatric studies. Its research studies are based on clinical samples of large patient populations.
