The Data Sciences Institute (DSI) is excited to announce a new partnership with the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research (OICR), a collaborative research institute that conducts and enables high-impact translational cancer research.
OICR conducts cross-disciplinary cancer research in areas such as genomics, immuno-oncology, informatics, computational biology, genome informatics, implementation science, drug discovery, and molecular pathology while facilitating global research collaboration, securely sharing data, and providing powerful, world-class tools and resources to the research community.
“Our collaborative approach, both locally and globally, ensures that Ontario remains at the forefront of cancer research and care. With a shared commitment to maximizing the health and economic benefit of our research for the people of Ontario, this partnership with DSI holds tremendous potential to drive breakthroughs in cancer research that can bring real benefits to those affected by cancer,“ said Dr. Laszlo Radvanyi, President and Scientific Director, OICR.
DSI collaborates with organizations eager to support world-class researchers, educators, and trainees advancing data sciences. We facilitate inclusive research connections, supporting foundational research in data science, as well as supporting the training of a diverse group of highly qualified personnel for their success in interdisciplinary environments.
As one of the DSI external funding partners, OICR researchers with an appointment at the University of Toronto can apply for research grants, supports and training and lead initiatives at the DSI.
“We are very excited to have the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research join our growing DSI community. Our goal is to create a hub to elevate data science research, training, and partnerships. By connecting and supporting data science researchers, the DSI advances research and nurtures the next generation of data- and computationally focused researchers,“ says Lisa Strug, Director, Data Sciences Institute.
