The CancerGrid project will deliver modular, distributed software solutions for the key problems of clinical cancer informatics: clinical trial patient entry, randomisation and follow-up; storage and analysis of complex datasets; linking trial and epidemiology data with profiling information. It will facilitate trials management, and future collaboration across international boundaries. CancerGrid will deliver a working services-based Grid infrastructure for cancer clinical trials. We will produce an implementation of the well established trial protocols as network services. XML documents containing trial protocol metadata will provide a basis for computation across trials, automating meta-analysis and the integration of trials and bioinformatics information.
