Turning researchers who fight childhood cancer into data wizards.


From obtaining relevant data to carrying out analyses, childhood cancer researchers face various hurdles which impede the pace of research.

The Childhood Cancer Data Lab (CCDL) develops tools and training programs to empower childhood cancer researchers to utilize vast amounts of data to make more robust discoveries and cures, faster and cheaper.



Tools designed to make data and analysis widely available and broadly reusable.


Data Science Training


The training teaches researchers the data science skills to advance their own research and benefit the entire childhood cancer community.

Analyze and Visualize

Researchers will learn various analysis methods, including machine learning and different visualization techniques to better understand their data.

Effective Collaboration

The training also equips researchers to take their collaboration with data scientists to the next level by giving them the language to effectively communicate with them.

I don’t have a coding background, but after the training, I feel like they’ve given me well-documented tools and set me on the right path. I can go home and integrate all the samples into this process they have laid out for us. Before coming here I wasn’t so confident but now I can go home and apply what I learned.
