all Moon Shots Program. In particular, they will leverage the investment across the moon shots.

These platforms include:

  • Adaptive Learning in Genomic Medicine: A work flow that enables clinicians and researchers to integrate real-time patient clinical information and research genomic data, allowing understanding of the cancer genome and ultimately improving outcome.
  • Big Data: The capture, storage and processing of huge amounts of information, much of it coming from Next Generation Sequencing machines (genome sequencing).
  • Cancer Control and Prevention: Community-based efforts in cancer prevention, screening, and early detection and survivorship to educate and achieve a measureable reduction in the cancer burden. Interventions in the areas of public policy, public education, professional education and evidence-based service delivery can make a measurable and lasting difference in our community, especially among those most vulnerable - the underserved.
  • Center for Co-Clinical Trials: Uses mouse or cell models of human cancers to test new drugs or drug combinations and discover the subset of patients most likely to respond to the therapy.
  • Clinical Genomics: An infrastructure designed to bank and process tumor specimens for clinical tests that can guide medical decisions.
  • Diagnostics Development: The development of diagnostic tests for use in the clinic to guide targeted therapy.
  • Early Detection: Using imaging and proteomic technologies to discover markers that can identify patients with early-staged cancers.
  • Institute for Applied Cancer Science: Developing effective targeted cancer drugs.
  • Institute for Personalized Cancer Therapy: An extensive infrastructure that analyzes genomic abnormalities in patient tumors to direct them to the best treatments and clinical trials.
  • Massive Data Analytics: A computer infrastructure that develops or uses computational algorithms to analyze large-scale patient and p
