Moffitt, Ohio State Form Network, Invite Major Cancer Centers to Join
Moffitt Cancer Center and the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center—Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute earlier this week announced that they are constructing a bioinformatics framework that would enable a multi-center collaboration.
The network, called the Oncology Research Information Exchange Network, or ORIEN, is seeking to form partnerships with other leading cancer centers in North America.
ORIEN has over 100,000 consented patients who have agreed to donate tissue and clinical data. The network will use a single protocol, Total Cancer Care, to create a collaborative, “rapid learning” environment that will share de-identified data to accelerate the development of targeted treatments.
