caBIG™ Overview


 caBIG™ is an information network enabling all constituencies in the
 cancer community – researchers, clinicians, patients – to share data
 and knowledge to accelerate the discovery of new diagnostics and
 therapeutics, and improve patient outcomes.


 caBIG™ Vision
  • Adapt or Build tools for collecting, analyzing, integrating and
    disseminating information associated with cancer research and
    care.
  • Connect the cancer research community through a shareable,
    interoperable infrastructure.
  • Deploy and Extend standard rules and a common language to
    more easily share information.
caBIG™: From Pilot to Enterprise

• An unprecedented effort to
  connect people, organizations,
  and data throughout the cancer
  research community

• Pilot Phase (2003-2007)
   •   190 participating organizations
   •   300 software components
   •   40+ end-user applications
   •   caGrid network that “connects” everyone
   •   45+ peer-reviewed publications


• Initial Deployment (2007-2008)
   •   43 of 63 NCI Designated Cancer Centers
       16 of 16 NCI Community Cancer Centers
caBIG™ Benefits

• Facilitate collaborative research.
                                                                          Basic

Lesson 1: Introduction to caBIG™
Determining the Forward Path


   Determining our specific path to connect with caBIG™ will
   require collaboration and involvement by domain decision-
   makers, end users, technical experts, and policy team
   members.


• Next Steps:

     • Determine target research domains across the institutions for
       connecting with caBIG™ – driven in part by the kinds of data we
       are willing to and want to share with others who are connecting
     • Identify the team that can drive the decisions required in those
       domains
     • Establish our goals and a path to implementation
