We are pleased to announce that the QIAI Lab has been awarded a second grant from the NIH, a U01 under NCI’s Informatics Technologies for Cancer Research and Management (ITCR) program. The grant entitled “Distributed computation of predictive models for precision medicine in cancer” will focus on developing methods and tools for training AI models relevant to cancer through federated computational methods that do not require any data sharing and that will propel multi-institutional collaborations for creating more robust AI models. The ITRC program is a very large network of centers developing enabling data science technologies to advance cancer discovery, and the QIAI Lab's involvement in this network will permit it to have a voice in developing emerging standardized approaches to data analysis in cancer problems as well as to deliver enabling technologies to the community that will accelerate creation of AI applications.

We are please to announce that the QIAI Lab is part of a team that was awarded a U24 grant under NCI’s Oncology Co-Clinical Imaging Research Resources to Encourage Consensus on Quantitative Imaging Methods and Precision Medicine, which is a new network of sites developing innovative methods to enable co-clinical (animal/human) trials. The grant is entitled “Integrating omics and quantitative imaging data in co-clinical trials to predict treatment response in triple negative breast cancer.” The ePAD technology ( developed by the QIAI Lab is central to this grant by bringing quantitative image analysis methods to small animal imaging and unifying quantitative assessment of cancer on images in both animal and human studies to catalyze research in the co-clinical trials paradigm.
