SHARING OPTIONS:

WASHINGTON—Research organizations from ten countries recently announced the launch of the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC), a collaboration designed to generate high-quality genomic data on up to 50 types of cancer through efforts projected to take up to a decade. The ICGC will make its data rapidly and freely available to the global research community. It invites research organizations in all nations to participate.

"Cancer's complexity poses an enormous challenge. NIH is highly encouraged that the worldwide scientific community is joining to meet this challenge, and we are pleased to be a member of this ambitious international endeavor," says Elias A. Zerhouni, M.D., director of NIH, which is the U.S. ICGC participant.
