Building support for a centralized hub for cancer research

The lack of a single, easily accessible biobank is impeding cancer research and slowing possible research breakthroughs. While researchers acknowledge the problem, rivalry and industry competitiveness make collaboration a challenge. Heart+Mind facilitated a series of high-level discussions with our patented Illumination Lab platform, which protects the anonymity of key figures and makes open discussion easier. Because of this approach, National Cancer Institute was able to publish the results and consolidate arguments to pursue development of a centralized information hub.
