Informatics at the ICR

Cancer is a complex, ever-changing set of diseases. To truly understand and beat cancer, we must have a comprehensive view of all its facets. New technologies allow us to gather data on all these views of cancer at scale. As a result, computational research is now at the forefront in our battle against cancer.
