New BMI faculty publishes in Cancer Cell

Date of Event: 
Monday, August 14, 2017

A new study entitled "Integrated Genomic Characterization of Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma"  was published in the August issue of Cancer Cell from The Cancer Genome Atlas network. The work investigated the molecular landscape of pancreatic adenocarcinoma. BMI faculty Dr. Richard Moffitt served as the analysis coordinator for the project, which involved the work of over 200 scientists.

Dr. Joel Saltz received the 2017 Marco Ramoni Distinguished Paper Award for Translational Bioinformatics at the AMIA Joint Summits Meeting

Date of Event: 
Monday, March 27, 2017

Dr. Joel Saltz received the 2017 Marco Ramoni Distinguished Paper Award for Translational Bioinformatics at the AMIA Joint Summits Meeting for his paper “Towards Generation,Management, and Exploration of Combined Radiomics and Pathomics Datasets forCancer Research J. Saltz, J. Almeida, Y. Gao, Stony Brook University; A.Sharma, Emory University; E. Bremer, T. DiPrima, T. Kurc,  M. Saltz, Stony Brook University; J. Kalpathy–Cramer, Massachusetts General Hospital.  

“This award is given to the first author of the paper at the meeting that best exemplifies the application of informatics methods to the elucidation of basic molecular biology processes that are relevant to the conquest of human disease.  The paper describes a novel interactive tool for data visualization of Genomic, Pathomic and Radiomic data integrated to patient outcomes and demographics.  To learn more about this innovative tool listen to Dr. Mary Saltz’s video about FeatureExplorer.  To interactively explore this tool please click here
