DoMore! : A project for cancer patients and society

To best treat cancer, we must first understand how the disease will develop. The research in DoMore! will enhance our ability to predict the development of a patient’s cancer, and thereby provide the right treatment.

We focus on the three most common forms of cancer - lung, colorectal and prostate cancer.

We are using our vast reserves of hospital patient data to find patterns that reveal something about a patient's cancer and the likely outcome - the prognosis. Using this “big data” and digital tools such as deep learning, we intend to develop more precise methods for finding the best treatment.

The DoMore! project was selected in 2016 as one of the Norwegian Research Council’s Lighthouse projects to solve large societal challenges using cutting-edge technology. The DoMore! project will run until 2021 under the Director of the Institute for Cancer Genetics and Informatics (ICGI) Håvard E. Danielsen.
