Title of Collaborative Activity:

Trans-NIH Working Group for Objective Measures in Cancer

Description of Collaborative Activity:

An National Institutes of Health (NIH) working group was formed to develop and consolidate wearable, passive and continuous out-of-clinic monitoring strategies for clinical assessment and understanding of disease progression in cancer. The goal of this group and its activities is to examine how these devices and techniques can be used to assess and understand cancer progression from multi-parameter data (context, vitals, and/or chemistry). Currently, several non-HHS agencies (National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Department of Defense (DoD), Department of Energy (DOE), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and HHS agencies (NIH and the Food and Drug Administration) are also involved in these discussions and will integrate their expertise/mission to propagate for medical purposes.
