"NextBio Clinical platform uses a big data technology approach to solve exactly these types of perplexing problems that doctors and researchers have spent years trying to address," said Alpana Verma-Alag , M.D., Head of Clinical Development at NextBio. "This study will look at clinical and genomic data from real patients, as well as data from mouse models and frozen human tissue samples, and then will correlate these data sets with other data from the public domain. Our goal at NextBio has been to not only make this type of study possible, but also to make it very easy and efficient to perform. To help change the course of a cancer that largely affects children would be a great accomplishment, and NextBio is very proud to be part of such an effort."
