Health Datapalooza, the meeting that brings data to life in ways that matter in health and health care, was held this week in Washington, DC.

Given the rapid pace of emerging advanced technologies and associated explosion of data generation, current computational models and visualization approaches are quickly becoming obsolete. A panel discussion at the conference explored the kinds of collaboration we must strive for to meet the goals of the Precision Medicine Initiative and the National Cancer Moonshot Initiative. The panelists described inter-agency projects and themes that can break down silos and bring us closer to a national learning healthcare system.

The Kuhn-Hicks Lab is proud to participate in innovative inter-agency pilots that support the next generation of care – new tools, models and approaches in cancer to provide a shift from observe and treat, to predict and prevent:
- Big Data Scientist Training Enhancement Program (BD-STEP)
- Analytic Tool for the Objective Monitoring of Human Performance (ATOM-HP)
- High Definition Single Cell Analysis of Blood and Tissue Biopsies in Patients with Colorectal Cancer Undergoing Hepatic Metastasectomy (HD-SCA in CRC)

Congratulations to Dr. Jerry Lee on his new appointment to the White House Cancer Moonshot Task Force.

The Moonshot initiative, announced earlier this year by US President Barack Obama, aims to accelerate cancer research, patient treatment and care. Headed up by Vice President Joe Biden, the Task Force will focus on making the most of federal investments, cancer research and patient engagement initiatives. Dr. Lee will serve as Deputy Director for Cancer Research and Technologies.
