Abstract

The general disease group of malignant neoplasms depicts one of the leading and increasing causes for death. The underlying complexity of cancer demands for abstractions to disclose an exclusive subset of information related to the disease. Our idea is to create a user interface for linking a simulation on cancer modeling to relevant additional publicly and freely available data. We are not only providing a categorized list of open datasets and queryable databases for the different types of cancer and related information, we also identify a certain subset of temporal and spatial data related to tumor growth. Furthermore, we describe the integration possibilities into a simulation tool on tumor growth that incorporates the tumor’s kinetics.
