MSK MIND (Multimodal Integration of Data) is a new strategic initiative aimed at accelerating research and discovery through advanced analytics. Fusing diagnostic modalities of radiologic, histologic, genomic, molecular, laboratory, and clinical data, MSK MIND will pursue a novel integrative analysis to improve cancer care. Our guiding hypothesis is that clinical and scientific research centered on patient stratification, diagnosis, and biomarker discovery will be enhanced and accelerated by analyses that span multiple data modalities.
MSK MIND’s mission is to develop a computational platform and data infrastructure for multi-modal data integration with the goal of developing and deploying advanced computational methods to synthesize data for improving patient diagnosis, stratification, and treatment options.
MSK MIND has three main objectives:
- Support and advance clinical and scientific research questions reliant on multi-modal data
- Develop a standardized and centralized institutional software and data infrastructure to facilitate integrative analysis
- Promote academic research excellence in high-dimensional data and machine learning-driven patient stratification, diagnosis, and biomarker discovery
