Erasmus Forms a Strategic Partnership with WRI

Originally published February 6, 2006

The private, non-profit Windber Research Institute (WRI) will work closely with Erasmus University Medical Center Rotterdam in a strategic partnership to jointly develop a translational medicine data warehousing solution for clinical, molecular (genomic and proteomic) and imaging data. Erasmus and WRI expressed a joint vision towards developing standardized approaches to data warehousing and analytics in support of translational medicine based clinical decision-making, each relying heavily upon Oracle and InforSense technology respectively.

With the rapid expansion of expression and genotyping data in both institutes, data warehousing solutions are required in parallel with data mining tools for translational medicine based projects.

The Erasmus MC projects are planned to consistently and systematically use large patient populations. The large number of well-annotated clinical samples, standardized protocols, and ground-breaking bioinformatics infrastructure will allow Erasmus MC researchers to produce statistically relevant, well-documented results which can quickly be translated into diagnostics for patients. Additionally, such analyses are anticipated to lead to the discovery of new drug targets.
