Certain ideas posted here overlap with others. Let's show those intersections and group together. Just to give an example - Matthew Katz has an idea about improving communication and I have an idea about public libraries that is related.
Enhanced Data Sharing
Cancer Research Ideas - Enhanced Data Sharing (Archived)
Sharing data among investigators and institutions is essential for building on the cancer research progress made so far, but many barriers to effective sharing exist. Barriers can arise from technological or infrastructural limitations (data are stored on different systems or are generated by different methods, making them incompatible). Poor access or participation can also be a barrier (some data may not be shared, and some researchers may not be able to access or analyze even data that are publicly available).
The submission period for Enhanced Data Sharing ideas ended on July 1. However, we encourage you to sign up for regular e-mail updates about the National Cancer Moonshot Initiative at the Cancer Moonshot Milestones web page.
The financial burden brought on by cancer is taking a serious toll on a patient's medical outcomes - impacting adherence, quality of life and survival rates. More must be done to collect & share this data.
Thanks to the large public initiatives of cancer genomics data collections such as TCGA. Limited access to these datasets to cancer research community is a major hurdle to cancer research.
Images are more than pictures - they are data, with radiomic information that can personalize therapy for patients. Improving medical image exchange between industry, providers and image processing experts will improve personalization of cancer care.
People have supercomputer in their pocket and have no idea and it can be used to help cure cancer
Approximately 1.6M people are diagnosed with cancer per year in the US. We need an open, comprehensive, longitudinal database in which to capture diagnosis, treatment & outcomes including Quality of Life measures as we try & determine VALUE of care.
The ubiquitous genus Alternaria contains many species that are able to invade cereals, oleaginous plants and other crops. Alternaria alternata is considered one of the most important species and can produce several mycotoxins .
SEER, SEER-Medicare and other publicly accessible databases are not easy to find, access or analyze for non-researchers with novel ideas that could lead to breakthroughs. Reconfigure to make the databases hackable for the general public.
Well-designed, accessible predictive models can provide evidenced-based, personalized estimates of important clinical cancer outcomes. I recommend comprehensive development of nomograms to assist with shared decision making.
I think it would be interesting to analyze "social data" and search for patterns that correlate with cancer.
Today the information from my surgery, my treatment, my anatomic pathology and surgical tissues are at one medical center or with one oncologist. This needs to be shared information accessible for research by any legitimate research group.
Treatment would involve adding a magnetic property, selenium, to existing cancer cells for extraction from the patient.
There remains outstanding ideas examined via early phase clinical trials, however, these studies are often done in silos (ie, academic centers alone as singular centers). There is currently modest incentive to collaborate across multiple centers.
I research Soulforce Medicine for many years, all cases of Soulforce Medicine Show have posted to website after finishing writing, and had been videoed during Soulforce Show, and published books about every case. comparing, analyzing, summarizing...
Radiation therapy efficacy is limited by a lack of clinical outcomes data and the correlates with the pre-treatment patient state and the treatment course. We propose that a registry model needs soot be developed that can be broadly implemented.
