Symposium on Personal Control of Genomic Data for Research

Our President Amanda Haddock, moderated a session at the NCI Symposium on Personal Control is Genomic Data and Research. Day 2 is today and we will get to hear from fellow Kansan Jace Ward about his experiences as a patient trying to get information. We are thankful to the NCI leadership for giving the patient community such a strong presence at this symposium. If you are interested, today will be broadcast and there’s a lot being tweeted using #NCIParticipantShareData19 Check out the Facebook post here.

Dragon Master Foundation works closely with the National Cancer Institute and a network of over 17 hospitals who have agreed to share data to speed cancer research. We have helped develop a large scale database that houses genomic, clinical and environmental data on pediatric brain tumors, and that can be used as a model for research into other types of cancer and rare disease. We support open data projects that share data with the world - not just a select group of hospitals - and that share that data as quickly as possible so we can impact patients of today.
