‘Cancer map’ looks for global matches for research, care
San Francisco Business Times

A team, which includes a nonprofit cofounded by a Stanford University cancer researcher and the federal institute targeting cancer, has created a map that will help doctors, researchers and government officials in even the poorest countries find ways to better treat patients.

The map will be unveiled Wednesday.

The Global Cancer Project Map is an online database that allows users to search for cancer experts and research projects by country and by cancer type. It initially contains more than 800 projects over six continents, according to the nonprofit Global Oncology Inc.  Later this year, said cofounder Dr. Ami Bhatt, an assistant professor of medicine at Stanford, users will be able to upload vetted projects directly to the map.
