Open Call

Essential Oncology Software for Research

Princess Margaret (PM) Data Science Program’s mission is to improve patient outcomes and optimize the delivery of value-based healthcare and cancer research. We will achieve this goal by building informatics resources and developing innovative data science methods.

Open Call

We are excited to announce an open call to support Essential Oncology Software for Research.

Princess Margaret (PM) and the PM Data Science Program (PMDS) recognize that software is critical to modern scientific research, advancing medical discoveries while providing a framework for reproducibility and transparency. PM Research and Clinical labs have developed software packages, libraries, and applications that have become essential tools for research.

Many of these software solutions do not have dedicated funding for maintenance, let alone for growth and maximizing their potential for transformational impact. In a targeted effort to bolster the use of PM-developed software for research, PMDS is seeking applications for software-centered projects requiring support that are essential to biomedical research within PM.

The software solution must be in active use, developed and/or maintained by groups within PM, have already demonstrated impact and show need and/or potential for continued improvement and growth.

Applications are due on Tuesday June 1, 2021 11:59pm EDT.
