Abstract

Biomedical informatics encompasses a set of disciplines focused on developing, implementing, and perfecting the use of informatics and computational tools in biomedical research and clinical care. In this volume, we focus on a number of areas crucial to the establishment of state-of-the-art informatics methods and systems to support cancer research. We provide motivation for undertaking such developments and deployments, a quick overview of the field, and hopes for the impact on cancer treatment and survival in this introduction.
