The UCL Computational Cancer Collaboratorium is a new initiative drawing together the extensive and diverse expertise in computational cancer research at UCL to enhance collaborative working and infrastructure supporting this research. The Collaboratorium’s first symposium will address “machine learning for small data in cancer research”; using novel computational methods to make discoveries from small, but rich laboratory datasets and clinical datasets for rare cancers. It will bring together researchers developing new computational methods with experimental and clinical cancer researchers seeking computational approaches to extract new insights from their data, to discuss challenges, solutions and how best to build our community.
