Abstract: CancerGrid is a consortium developing open standards for clinical cancer informatics based on data and metadata representation, distributed service-oriented architectures, and collaborative working in virtual organisations with exceptional confidentiality constraints. In this paper we outline the unique challenges that clinical trials and translational research pose to the e-Science community, and investigate how existing technologies can best be deployed to support research with a significant clinical component. We discuss the broader picture of national and international programmes for cancer research, and evaluate the usability of the current generation of software tools in support of these programmes.
