TumorScope (Oct. 1, 2019-Sept. 30, 2024)

In this interdisciplinary research project (IRP) from the VUB, we leverage the unique expertise and data present at the VUB and the UZ Brussel to create a general framework to store and analyze raw medical data, both at the image and molecular level, in relation to solid tumors, their clinical behavior and response to therapies. An integrated research platform, which conforms to GDPR and patient legislation, will enable AI-driven extraction of new information on breast and brain tumors, as well as sarcomas. Combined with expert insights from clinicians, we will work towards assisting and improving the decision-making process in especially multi-disciplinary oncology consults (MOC).
