September is blood cancer awareness month 2021. A series of specific blood cancer awareness days were organized, concluding with the 1st Big Data for Blood Cancer Awareness Day on 30 September 2021.
HARMONY seizes this opportunity to showcase to patients and to anyone with an interest, how their researchers and clinicians are using Big Data to develop more personalized treatments for blood cancer patients. HARMONY aims to engage with professionals and non-professionals in the blood cancer field to explain what Big Data can mean: for the lives of patients and for the daily work of doctors in the clinic.
During the Big Data for Blood Cancer Awareness Day the HARMONY Open Virtual Forum for patients was organized. This informal mini event welcomed patients and anyone with an interest in (big) data in blood cancer research.
The HARMONY Alliance is using Big Data to develop more personalized treatments for blood cancer patients. HARMONY is a partnership that unites more than 100 organizations from 18 European countries, such as hospitals, universities, research institutes, medical associations, patient organizations, pharmaceutical companies, and IT companies.
