DoMore! receives Lighthouse project grant from the Norwegian Research Council
The Norwegian Research Council IKTPLUSS has selected The DoMore! project application as one of the 3 winners of the prestigious Lighthouse Project grant. The Lighthouse Project winning proposals were announced at the Norwegian E-health conference on the 26th april 2016.
The DoMore! project aims to explore the unique combination of academic and industrial competence within the project group to radically improve prognostication and hence treatment of cancer by using digital tools for pathology. The DoMore! project focuses on heterogeneity in cancer and is led by Institute Director Håvard Danielsen.
By largely digitalizing and automating diagnostics and prognostication of cancer, we can literally DoMore! and analyze a greater number of samples from the same tumor, leading to a more precise diagnosis for each patient Safe storage, analysis and prosessing of the Big Data the project will produce will also be handled by the project partners.
The DoMore! team is composed of experts within several fields, including: digital imaging, processing, robotics, pathology, cell biology, surgery and oncology, both in Norway and abroad. Together, we will create solutions that will allow us to DoMore!, resulting in objective cancer diagnostics that can be made available to all patients.
