Cancer Research Institute Awards Grant to Develop Powerful Genomic Data Resource for Cancer Immunotherapy Researchers

The Cancer Research Institute (CRI), a nonprofit organization established in 1953 to advance biomedical research with the goal of developing lifesaving immunotherapies for all forms of cancer, announced that is has awarded a technology innovation grant to two nonprofit research institutes, Sage Bionetworks (Sage) and the Institute for Systems Biology (ISB), for the creation of the Cancer Research Institute iAtlas, an online database and web resource designed to help basic and clinical researchers navigate immunological data across multiple tumor types. The CRI iAtlas database is the first comprehensive effort in immuno-oncology to address the recent National Cancer Moonshot Blue Ribbon Panel recommendation to establish a pan-cancer immune atlas that would help catalyze new research in cancer immunotherapy.
