Sponsored by HPN and the NCI Division of Cancer Biology, the goal of the prize is to challenge data scientists to find ways to quickly and effectively increase our understanding of signaling cellular pathways in breast cancer.

"This is our first prize challenge to foster innovations in breast cancer research," said Dr. Richard Merkin , President and CEO of Heritage Provider Network. "Hopefully, our  understanding of how these signaling pathways are deregulated in cancer cells will lead to a better understanding of how cancer cells are wired," he continued.  "Currently, we don't have the maps needed to guide our efforts. This challenge can provide those key maps, allowing effective treatment therapies to be accelerated, savings lives and millions of dollars."

"It is a privilege to be able to count the Heritage Provider Network as a partner in this important effort to unravel the networks that are deregulated in breast cancer. The challenge format will help discover new biology in an accelerated way, as dozens of participants working on the same data for 4 months can achieve what a single group would achieve in many years," said Gustavo Stolovitzky, co-founder of The
