Data is everywhere. From diagnosis to treatment to recovery, a patient’s cancer journey leaves a data trail. What if the answers we seek about cancer are hidden in there? It could help us refine diagnosis, select treatments and improve the patient experience.

With the Cancer Innovation Challenge, data scientists, technologists and clinicians are looking for innovative data science solutions to help Scotland become a world leading carer for people with cancer.

Join Professors Aileen Keel (IHDP) and Dave Robertson (University of Edinburgh) to discuss the contributions of data science towards cancer research and care.
