An ad hoc committee will plan and host a 1.5-day public workshop to examine the clinical use of high-dimensional omics data and computational methods in precision oncology research and clinical care. The workshop will feature invited presentations and panel discussions on topics that may include
- Challenges and opportunities to use omics data to develop precision medicine approaches and technologies in cancer care.
- Potential standards and best practices for computational software and methodological approaches for the use of big data to inform clinical care of patients with cancer, especially in regard to multiparameter/multitreatment testing and interpretation.
- Potential opportunities to improve the translation of omics technologies into oncology practice, such as harmonization of standards for omics-based discovery, development, and evaluation; data sharing and reproducibility; oversight and regulation; education, training, and workforce needs; and use of dissemination and implementation science strategies.
The committee will develop the agenda for the workshop sessions, select and invite speakers and discussants, and moderate the discussions. A proceedings of the presentations and discussions at the workshop will be prepared by a designated rapporteur in accordance with institutional guidelines.
