Using Computing Power to Cure Cancer

The Cancer Institute of New Jersey, Rutgers, and IBM have announced their plans to develop a tissue microarray database that would extend the CINJ's 'Help Defeat Cancer' project, launched in 2006. Led by David Foran, director of the Center for Biomedical Imaging & Informatics at UMDNJ–Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, the upgraded system will feature a digital database of tissue microarrays. Researchers can use this database to compare cancerous tissue samples, share research data, and keep track of the latest therapeutic developments.
