Session Abstract


Internet2 Land Speed Record Award Ceremony
Rich Carlson

"Unlocking Our Treasures: Enhancing Access to Tissue for Genomics Research"
Dr. Henry C. Chueh
Research in the genomics era relies heavily on access to healthy and diseased tissue samples to aid in the genetic characterization of disease. Tissue samples, their DNA and other derivatives, and even their extracted genetic data may often be available at a particular institution. A high-speed, reliable network infrastructure like Internet2 offers an exciting opportunity to identify and share these resources more efficiently among researchers around the world. A demonstration of how the Shared Pathology Informatics Network (SPIN) initiative is using peer-to-peer networks to solve this problem will be shown. Through a Web browser, queries for common and rare cancers will be performed over the SPIN network that currently hosts millions of tissue specimens, and images and genetic data of located tissues will be explored.
