With 11 new partners, AACR’s Project GENIE to make available genomic data from 60,000 tumors by 2019

By Matthew Bin Han Ong

Project GENIE, already the largest publicly available genomic data repository in the U.S., is on track to publish information on 60,000 sequenced tumors—derived from an international network largely comprised of academic cancer centers—by January 2019.

Run by the American Association for Cancer Research, Project GENIE, short for the AACR Project Genomics Evidence Neoplasia Information Exchange, is a cancer registry of real-world data that can be used to develop new therapies, design better clinical trials, and personalize treatment through clinical decision-making.

The consortium was launched in November 2015 with eight founding institutions (The Cancer Letter, Aug. 4, 2017).

In May, GENIE announced 11 new members, bringing the total number of participating institutions to 19. The new members are:

Cancer Center, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

Cancer Research UK Cambridge Centre, University of Cambridge

Duke Cancer Institute, Duke University

Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center, Columbia University

Swedish Cancer Institute

Providence Cancer Institute

Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, Wake Forest University Health Sciences

The University of Chicago Comprehensive Cancer Center

UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center

Vall d’ Hebron Institute … Continue reading With 11 new partners, AACR’s Project GENIE to make available genomic data from 60,000 tumors by 2019
