A donation of $1.7 million from Maxime Rémillard with another $1.3 M to come, has allowed the establishment of an innovative research project “The Karen Anthony Consortium for Lung Cancer Research”, which is the first project of the McGill Initiative for Shared Database Across Sites ( MIDAS ). The Consortium will bring together experts in pathology, medical imaging, clinical oncology, surgery and proteomics/metabolomics, along with specialists in applied clinical and fundamental AI/machine learning, in order to collect and integrate massive amounts of data on lung cancer. New approaches using artificial intelligence will generate sophisticated algorithms that will guide clinicians in selecting the best therapies to treat each patient’s lung cancer, and can also indicate new directions for future research and therapy. Drs Spatz, Fiset, Wang, and Camilleri-Broet from the Department of Pathology, together with Dr. Jonathan Spicer of Surgery, are at the core of the project.
