Scilake Pilots

The SciLake Cancer Knowledge Graph

SciLake is in full swing with its pilot programs in the fields of neuroscience, cancer research, transportation, and energy. These initiatives aim to create or enrich domain-specific Scientific Knowledge Graphs that capture valuable knowledge from each scientific field.

The SciLake Cancer Pilot is developing a first-of-its-kind cancer knowledge graph, with the aim to make public resources in biology and cancer more accessible to the research community.

The case study in focus is Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL), the most prevalent adult leukemia. The cancer knowledge graph will assist in discovering essential biomarkers for personalised treatment and care, a critical step towards achieving precision medicine.

Leading the pilot are researchers from the Centre for Research and Technology in Greece and the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden.
