ORNL team harnesses AI to better match cancer patients with clinical trials

A team of researchers from Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Health Data Sciences Institute has harnessed the power of artificial intelligence to better match cancer patients with clinical trials. The researchers were one of 10 teams to develop a digital tool to address complex challenges relevant to medical conditions such as cancer and Lyme disease as part of The Opportunity Project (TOP) Health Sprint, a 14-week effort sponsored by the Census Bureau, coordinated by the Department of Health and Human Services, and led by two Presidential Innovation Fellows.
