‘Connected in Translation’ will focus on the data and information challenges facing the translational medical research community in the 21st century. Rapid advancements in technologies such as next-generation sequencing together with the larger patient cohorts needed for research in personalized medicine are resulting in an ever-increasing volume of data. Yet today’s researchers are having to cope with the resulting IT complexity in an era of shrinking budgets.

In the face of these challenges, the decision makers in medical research are increasingly looking towards collaborative models. IT infrastructures suited to supporting future innovations in translational medical research can only be sustained through close collaboration between all the key stakeholders, including scientists, medical centers, patients, the medical industry and the government.

During ‘Connected in Translation’, CTMM will present its TraIT project - a forward looking initiative to implement a nationally accessible IT infrastructure for translational research in the Netherlands. Over 25 public and private partner organizations are already collaborating in the project. NBIC is one of them.
