    Launch of the “Big Data” platform of the Harmony project

    HARMONY, an IMI-JU funded project, coordinated by The Institute for Biomedical Research of Salamanca, launches a “Big Data” platform that will enable hematologic cancers research. The platform, led by the Spanish partner GMW, will integrate databases of more than 10.000 anonymous patients and will be able to provide information about the best treatment for each hematologic disease, paving the way for personalized medicine. The launch of the platform had a great coverage in Spanish media. Cuatro, Diariomedico, Ileon are only a few of the Spanish mass media that reported the set-up of the platform.

  • Latest version of the histopathology ontology has been released

    Latest version of the histopathology ontology has been released

    eTOX, an IMI-JU 1 funded project ended in December 2016. One major achievement of the eTOX project was the development of common ontologies. Histopathology Ontology, that allows mapping of the histological lesions in toxicological studies. This ontology complements the OntoBrowser tool, developed to manage ontologies and controlled terminologies. Both the Histopathology Ontology and the OntoBrowser have  been developed by Novartis. Both tools would serve as an important legacy to be further used within eTRANSAFE, an IMI-2 project recently started. More info on histopathology ontology at eTRANSAFE

    HARMONY’s Big Data platform presented at the 2nd General Assembly

    The Project’s 2nd GA was held in Berlin, Germany, on the 23rd and 24th of October 2017 where the most advanced technology in data sharing was presented to contribute to a better understanding of hematologic cancers. Public and private organizations will contribute data on most hematologic cancers. The use of a common data model will allow to conduct analysis at an unprecedented scale. Synapse is member of the HARMONY’s Project Management Office, and supports the Executive and Steering Committees in facilitating collaboration and ensuring the effective contribution from all partners in this ambitious project.
