About

Welcome to the Cancer Informatics for Cancer Centers (CI4CC) interactive home!  This is the nation’s premier professional society for bringing together experts from the worlds of academia, business, and community cancer centers, in fields such as Biomedical Informatics, Computer Science, Clinical Research, Precision Medicine, Information Technology, Healthcare-IT, and Pharmaceuticals. CI4CC is organized and lead by executive leaders volunteering from the academic and clinical cancer center communities …but we are not only about cancer!  Informatics and technology is borderless  — and so are we.

CI4CC is a nonprofit 501c3 organization intended to provide a focused national forum for engagement of senior cancer informatics leaders, primarily aimed at academic cancer centers anywhere in the world, but with a special emphasis on all 69 NCI-funded cancer centers. Our intent is to expand to all other similar non-NCI based organizations.  While each of our cancer centers are structured differently and our titles vary, from Cancer Center CIO/CRIO/CMIO to Directors of Cancer Informatics Shared Resources and Programs, to Chairs of Departments and Schools, we know first hand there are similarities in both the issues we face and the solutions we achieve.

As a consortium, we have initiated a dedicated list serve, an open-initiatives program, and very targeted cancer center informatics face-to-face meetings.  These meetings are a place to review our priorities and initiatives, providing a forum for discussion of the strategic and pragmatic issues we, as informatics leaders, individually face at our respective institutions and cancer centers.  These meetings are complementary to existing fora such as the BRIITE, AMIA, Global Alliance for Health and Genomics, ASHG, US-based CTSA Informatics annual meeting, and NCI NCIP meetings.

For our Corporate Sponsors and members of the commercial informatics community: 

CI4CC welcomes the engagement of our corporate partners in support of our cancer informatics-focused mission. CI4CC will provide upon request a sponsorship grid application detailing various levels of support. All sponsors require approval from the CI4CC board. In order to support the academic and research mission of our members, we pay special attention to our corporate collaborators engagement so our members have a balanced, informative, and productive experience. Please send your email requests to ci4cc@ci4cc.org.
