Coordinating Center for Cancer Systems Biology Consortium

Sage Bionetworks is the Coordinating Center for the NCI's Cancer Systems Biology Consortium (CSBC).

The multidisciplinary Cancer Systems Biology Consortium (CSBC), funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), aims to tackle the most perplexing issues in cancer to increase our understanding of tumor biology, treatment options, and patient outcome. Investigators of the CSBC will integrate experimental biology with mathematical and computational modeling to gain insight into processes relevant to cancer initiation, progression, and treatment options.

Sage Bionetworks serves as the Coordinating Center for the CSBC. The Coordinating Center will facilitate data and resource sharing, as well as collaborative scientific activities and systems biology-oriented outreach.
