About #bigdataforbloodcancer 

We have launched a #bigdataforbloodcancer communication campaign for you! We hope to engage with you and with many professionals and non-professionals in the field of blood cancer to explain how Big Data can improve the lives of people with blood cancer.

In September, October and November we have planned a range of online activities to inform patients and their families of the potential of Big Data analytics in Blood Cancer Research. In addition to Blood Cancer Awareness Month and the multiple Blood Cancer Awareness Days, we are launching the 1st World Big Data for Blood Cancer Awareness Day 2021 on 30 September 2021 including an Open Virtual Forum for Patients.

About us

The HARMONY Alliance is using Big Data to develop more personalized treatments for blood cancer patients. HARMONY is a partnership that unites more than 100 organizations from 18 European countries, such as hospitals, universities, research institutes, medical associations, patient organizations, pharmaceutical companies, and IT companies.

There are several features of HARMONY that make it unique. For the first time, the HARMONY Alliance has created a platform where different stakeholders involved the research, development, and deployment of novel treatment options in hematology have been working together in close cooperation. This also includes the representatives of patient organisations working in these therapeutic areas.

The HARMONY Big Data Platform (with over 80.000 patient data sets) is currently processing several ground-breaking research initiatives in haematology. Click here for preliminary results of these research projects. In addition to understanding some key features of rare hematological malignancies, research supported by Big Data and artificial intelligence will also lead to the expedited availability of novel treatment options for patients.

Big data for big questions

To answer the key outstanding questions about blood cancer, researchers need harmonized and high-quality data on treatment outcomes in thousands of patients. Leading research teams are making use of innovative Big Data analytic tools, creating a wealth of information to answer critical questions about these diseases. Read our #Bigdataforbloodcancer Blogs.
