Dartmouth Professor Working on AI Cancer Cure
Aug 12, 2020 | New Hampshire Union Leader
"It’s a big claim, Dartmouth College Professor Gene Santos Jr. admits, but he thinks his artificial intelligence tool can help doctors come up with a cancer cure," reports the New Hampshire Union Leader.
“'We're trying to build this fundamental fabric to build that playbook together, so that it makes sense, and so you can start mixing existing playbooks,' Santos said.
"Santos and his team of Dartmouth engineering colleagues, along with Joseph Gormley, Director of Advanced Systems Development at Tufts Clinical and Translational Science Institute and his colleagues, as well as industry partner IOMICS, are working on a $3.4 million National Institutes of Health program to develop the artificial intelligence tool to bring together all known cancer research.
"The plan is to develop an AI-based system that analyzes patients’ clinical and genomic data and the relationship between biochemical pathways that drive health and disease, Santos said."
