The present technological development project has as its objective the strengthening of an innovative Infrastructure to support Biobanking for Research in Integrated Diagnostics (IBRID), the demonstration of the technology and services offered in an industrially relevant environment and finally the demonstration of the prototype in an operating. Image biobanks are a new type of biobank dedicated to the collection of diagnostic images obtained with tomographic imaging technologies available in clinical practice, today essential for the study and identification of new non-invasive biomarkers called image biomarkers. In this context, IBRID will allow the provision of advanced services to support biobanking to facilitate and improve the reliability and use of data stored in the biobank through the strengthening and implementation of an infrastructure dedicated to the collection and curation of relevant imaging data for clinical and epidemiological purposes, developing and using enabling technologies for big data analytics.
The partnership involved in IBRID aggregates multidisciplinary knowledge and skills, capable of satisfying all the needs of the project. The proponents all have a high propensity for innovation and consolidated experience of participation in industrial research and experimental development projects at a national and international level.
