Reduce the effort needed to integrate, explore and preserve your data

We provide advice, open source platforms and training to translational research projects.
eTRIKS is an IMI project that is funded to support other projects. If you know of a project that eTRIKS could support contact us here.

    Analysis pipelines for very rich data sets The Challenge OncoTrack is looking at deep data sets for cancer patients to discover new markers for Colon Cancer. The goal of OncoTrack is to identify and characterize biomarkers that will help our understanding of the variable make-up of tumours and how this affects the way patients respond to treatment. This can be used to guide appropriate therapy choices for each individual patient. The data sets created are extremely rich containing clinical data, animal xenograft data and a wide range of genomic information including GWAS and NGS. Already hundreds of terabytes of data […]

    Comparing clinical data across multiple disease areas The Challenge Biopharmaceuticals provide a valuable new approach to disease management. But a significant limitation in their use is the development of anti-drug antibodies (ADA) in some patients. The development of ADA is seen to some extent across all diseases and with all treatments, but the individual data sets for any single disease and treatment have usually been small. ABIRISK seeks to bring these data sets together to understand the common underlying causes of ADA. To do this, disparate data sets from multiple disease areas and many different institutions need to be analysed […]

    Unbiased comparison of data sets The Challenge Severe Asthma is often difficult to manage and many patients are unresponsive to treatment. Furthermore, it is thought that there are many different phenotypes of asthma that are not properly understood. U-BIOPRED aims to create ‘handprints’ that identify sub-phenotypes of asthma. The handprints can then be used to better understand the disease and lead to better targeted treatments for the individual. U-BIOPRED handprints include a wealth of diverse data on each patient and the researchers need to compare and combine them in an unbiased environment. This will permit identification of a wide range […]

Chris Marshall – Hacking through the thorny challenge of establishing project-to-project support and data sharing agreements.

The IMI (Innovative Medicines Initiative) drive large public private partnerships (PPPs) to work collaboratively towards the development of new and effective medicines. IMI PPPs such as U-BIOPRED, ABIRISK and OncoTrack produce vast amounts of data that with the right management will enable development of new therapeutic approaches for diseases such as cancer and asthma. However to do this, PPP data has to be shared. Intellectual Property matters Data in its various forms need to be formatted, shipped and stored to enable analysts to get the best they can out of it. This requires specialist help that compel owners to share […]

Angus McAllister – Protecting your data from harmful threats

Learn to protect your data. Health data owners assure patients through contractual agreements that the data drawn from samples that patients provide will be protected and unavailable only to a few specialised experts. Having spent millions on accumulating that data, it would be professionally negligent as well as ethically unacceptable if data owners process patient information insecurely. EU law reflects this view by applying harsh penalties to those that don’t respect health data protection rules. High fines coupled with the prospect of very damaging media attention could irreversibly affect public confidence in companies who promise to protect patient information, but […]
