HARMONY Alliance participates in the ELN symposium

Mannheim, Germany

April 18, 2023 08:00 - April 18, 2022 - 19:00

HARMONY Alliance Experts will present and participate in the Symposium of the European LeukemiaNet, organized in-person in Mannheim, Germany on 18 April 2022 at the Congress Center Rosengarten.

In the past six years, the HARMONY Alliance has built a research infrastructure that facilitates state-of-the-art Big Data research projects in leukemia and other types of blood cancer. HARMONY invites hematologists to become involved and submit research proposals that utilize this infrastructure to improve the treatment of leukemia patients.

European LeukemiaNet (ELN ) is a highly valued Partner in the HARMONY Alliance. ELN is a publicly funded research network of excellence that aims to improve the treatment of leukemia through coordinated research efforts across Europe. HARMONY experts will present and participate in the annual ELN symposium at 18 April 2022.

The program will feature ELN recommendations for the treatment of AML, the paradigm shift in MPN, new developments in immunophenotyping, new approaches to treating R/R AML, and more.

Topics and speakers of the ELN - HARMONY & HARMONY PLUS session (11:30 - 13:00)

#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.
