  • ICGI's Lancet article presented at Oslo Life Science 2020

    11.02.2020

    The ICGI recently developed a clinically useful prognostic marker using deep learning and digital scanning of conventional hematoxylin and eosin-stained tumor tissue sections. The assay has been extensively evaluated in large, independent patient populations, correlates with and outperforms established molecular and morphological prognostic markers, and gives consistent results across tumor and nodal stage.

    The article "Deep learning for prediction of colorectal cancer outcome: a discovery and validation study" was published in "The Lancet" on February 1st 2020, and has since been presented on several occasions. One of them was at the conference "Oslo Life Science 2020", held in the amazing "Aula" of, and by, the University of Oslo, where among others the newly appointed Director of Oslo University Hospital; Bjørn-Atle Bjørnbeth, attended. He congratulated Håvard Danielsen, Ole-Johan Skrede, Sepp De Raedt and the other co-authors with their excellent achievement.

  • HED @ HOD

    29.10.2019

    On tuesday 29th October 2019, HOD; Helse- og omsorgsdepartementet (Ministry of Health and Care Services) held a Conference to launch the National Health and Hospital Plan, the overall document for the Norwegian specialist health service. 

    One of the main topics this year was technology. Head of Department Håvard E. Danielsen presented the research project www.domore.no, demonstrating how www.icgi.no uses artificial intelligence for better prediction of cancer. The presentation was streamed to a large audience.

    The Institute for Cancer Genetics and Informatics is celebrating its 15th anniversary. Presentations at the annual summer seminar showed that the institute has reached many goals the last fifteen years, and will continue the search for improved cancer prognostics and diagnostics also in the future.

    We congratulate the recipients of this year's ICGI awards, presented by Institute leader Håvard E. Danielsen

    • Senior researcher Birgitte Nilsen received the research award for her excellent work on chromatin entropy and prognosis.
    • PhD candidate Ole Johan Skrede and Post. Doc Sepp de Raedt received the development award.
    • Post. Doc Andreas Kleppe got the award for high efforts.
    • Professor Sverre Heim at Section for Cancer Cytogenetic received the honorary award.
    • Head Engineer Wanja Kildal received the prize for best social initiative.

    Several other employees' efforts were also highlighted during a long day with a high dose of professional content wrapped in various forms of festivities.

  • AI at the ICGI

    04.07.2019

    "- The results of the DoMore! project so far show that it is possible to teach a computer through Deep Learning and Big Data, not only to do the same but, to establish more robust grading system in cancer types where pathology is less successful, while at the same time eliminating the subjective component."

  • ICGI and DoMore are covered in the Norwegian hospital trust's research report for 2019

    On behalf of the Ministry of Health and Care Services, the four regional health authorities have prepared a report on research and innovation in norwegian hospitals in 2018. The report "Research and innovation for the patient's best" presents patient-related research projects from all over the country.  

    The report shows that users (patients) have received a much stronger participation in the research in the specialist health service. In 2018, 68 per cent of the projects financed by the regional health enterprises went to projects where users participated. That is a big step up from 20 percent user participation in 2014.

  • Mid Term Report for the DoMore!-project

    21.03.2019

    illustration, front page DoMore! Mid Term ReportAt the end of 2018, the mid-way point of the 5-year long DoMore!-project was reached. The report showcases the challenges and results so far, but for specific results that are, or are to be, published in scientific journals, we have to refer the reader to these publications. 
    The goal has been to increase the number of diagnostic and prognostic tests for cancer patients to provide a more accurate prognosis for the patient. Our results so far show that it is, in fact, possible to teach a computer, not only to do the same but through Deep Learning and Big Data, to establish more robust grading systems in cancer types where pathology is less successful, while at the same time eliminating the subjective component.  

    Link to the report. Enjoy!
