NCI’s Cancer Grand Challenges Target New Tech in Cancer Care

The competition aims to incorporate modern tools and data science into practice to enhance patients’ quality of life.

The National Cancer Institute is using Cancer Grand Challenges as a way to improve the lives of cancer patients through data science and emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence. According to Dr. Andrew Kurtz, program director in the Center for Strategic Scientific Initiatives at NCI, AI is not only providing amazing benefits in image analysis when it comes to detecting cancer, it’s also helping with gathering molecular data and other clinical information. Kurtz outlines how the global research community is proposing to address the nine new Cancer Grand Challenges and highlights a new three-dimensional tumor map that is transforming the way cancer is diagnosed and treated.
