Premier Comprehensive Cancer Center in the Cloud (C4): Powered by Artificial Intelligence
Imagine taking the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey and putting it in the cloud, where it is accessible from any geographic location for cancer care, research, and education, without disparities. In this seminar, the first example of such a Comprehensive Cancer Center in the cloud (C4), powered by artificial intelligence, is presented with data that will show its potential for real impact. This would be a win-win approach for global health that can significantly address disparities in the U.S. and globally. Opportunities for collaboration and scale also will be presented. 

About the Presenter

He also is director of the Global Health Catalyst, launched at the Harvard Radcliffe Institute summit in 2015 and dedicated to catalyzing high-impact international collaborations to increase access to cancer care research and education and to reduce disparities.
