FMI is a molecular information company dedicated to transforming in cancer care through providing molecular information that drives clinical decisions and improves cancer research.
FMI database consists of a massive amount of patient genomic data that researchers can access to drive their research hypotheses. One of the challenges with presenting complex scientific data is to create an interface that is informative, but not overwhelmingly so. We also need to create an interface that is intuitive for all users and not just the experts.
Clinical outcome information is incredibly valuable for cancer research. However, the tools currently available for data collection and annotation are generally very information heavy and not designed with the users in mind. Our goal here is to simplify and streamline the data entry process using more humanized languages and user-centered interactions.
