CANDLE: Exascale Deep Learning Enabled Precision Medicine for Cancer

Principal Investigator: Rick Stevens, Argonne National Laboratory

This project aims to build and apply a scalable deep neural network environment—the CANcer Distributed Learning Environment (CANDLE)—to address three top challenges of the National Cancer Institute: understanding the molecular basis of key protein interactions; developing predictive models for drug response, and automating the analysis; and the extraction of information from millions of cancer patient records to determine optimal cancer treatment strategies.
