MED-C and OCC to Establish a Biomedical Data Commons
We are very pleased to announce that the Molecular Evidence Development Consortium (MED-C) and the OCC have signed a memorandum of understanding to create the MED-C Biomedical Data Commons (BDC), which will allow the sharing of genetic and clinical data in a unified manner. Within a few years, the MED-C BDC is expected to be one of the largest genomic data commons, a key step toward the next stage of personalized medicine.
“We are very pleased to be collaborating with MED-C to build this initiative. Not only will the MED-C BDC be one of the largest genomic data commons, but it will share a common architecture and interfaces with other OCC projects so that researchers will have transparent access to a critical mass of genomic and associated clinical and outcome data,” says Dr. Robert Grossman, director of the OCC.
