The Data Science and Information Technology Program (DSITP) vision is to develop enterprise-level, consolidated information technology infrastructure that will provide exceptional IT capabilities to NCI in support of basic, translational, and clinical cancer and AIDS research. The program is being strategically realigned and is moving toward a contract-wide responsibility and an enterprise mentality in managing mission-critical IT resources and projects. DSITP comprises the Advanced Biomedical Computing Center (ABCC); the IT Operations Group (ITOG); Cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid (caBIG) Technical Management, Operations, and Support Group (caBIG TechOps); the Information Security and Compliance Office (ISCO); the Visual Communications Group (VCG); and the Business Information Systems Group (BISG).
DSITP’s many long-term and intermediate strategic goals include:
- Expansion of the Advanced Biomedical Computing Center s (ABCC’s) role as a premier center for scientific computing, imaging, and bioinformatics;
- Broader support of the NCI Center for Biomedical Informatics and Information Technology (CBIIT) in its caBIG development and deployment efforts;
- Design and construction of a state-of-the-art Datacenter at the Advanced Technology Research Facility (ATRF);
- Design and implementation of enterprise class IT solutions to enable the Cancer Data Cloud, patient profiling, and NCI drug development platform initiatives.
