We are excited to announce that EOSC4Cancer will soon be joining the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) as a Driver Project!
During their 11th Plenary Meeting in San Francisco, the GA4GH announced the 10 new Driver Projects joining the initiative, among which is EOSC4Cancer, the first project of the EOSC Association to be a part of this alliance.
Created in 2013, the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health is dedicated to advancing human health by shaping frameworks that promote secure and responsible use of a variety of genomic data. This alliance includes more than 500 organisations extending from research and ethics to patient advocacy and government, all striving to turn genomic medicine from a promise to a routine practice. The community consistently develops open-source products that enable the access, usage, and study currently existing data, while the human rights of the people who share their data are always protected.
The GA4GH Driver Projects together provide access to nearly 4 million genomes across a wide array of projects. EOSC4Cancer’s aim within the project is to make curated cancer data available to strengthen cancer research at all stages, from prevention to treatment. We are honoured to be a part of this initiative, and look forward to future achievements!
