Theme: Big Data innovations in Multiple Myeloma: New analytic tools and new insights
EMN-HARMONY Joint Session Program (Session XI)
Multiple myeloma is a rare and highly heterogeneous hematologic malignancy, and the clinical research certainly plays a fundamental role in the management of patients with this disease. To deal with such a complex scenario, in 2005, a group of European hematologists pulled together to increase their understanding of multiple myeloma and to produce effective research projects and clinical trials. These efforts resulted in the creation of the European Myeloma Network (EMN), a non profit organization.
EMN is a highly valued HARMONY Partner. An important Multiple Myeloma project is being coordinated by the EMN within HARMONY, and it involves many European sites.
#bigdataforbloodcancer: Accelerating Better and Faster Treatment for Patients with Hematologic Malignancies.
The HARMONY Alliance (HARMONY and HARMONY PLUS) is a public-private European Network of Excellence for Big Data in Hematology. Our mission is to unlock and spread valuable knowledge on hematologic malignancies (blood cancers) among a large number of stakeholders, with the goal to harness and mine Big Data to speed up the development of improved treatments for patients and more effective treatment strategies. HARMONY is a partnership with more than 140 organizations such as hospitals, research institutes, patient organizations, pharmaceutical companies, regulatory agencies, IT companies, and medical network and associations such as ELN. Together, they have developed the HARMONY Big Data Platform and the HARMONY Datalake, which contains anonymized data records from tens of thousands of blood cancer patients. This unique research infrastructure, with advanced big data analytic and AI tools, is being used to accelerate the development of more effective treatments for patients with hematologic malignancies (blood cancers).
HARMONY has identified more than 156,000 patient datasets and has transferred more than 73,000 datasets into the HARMONY Big Data Platform. Careful procedures have been installed to ensure the anonymization and quality of the data. In addition, HARMONY data scientists have developed sophisticated methods for data harmonization and analysis. Dedicated Research Project teams are currently using the Big Data Platform to answer critical research questions that cannot be addressed with other methods.
