Cancer research organisation deploys Dotmatics

The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) in London, UK, has licensed and deployed the Dotmatics informatics platform. More than 100 ICR scientists are currently utilising Browser for data querying and reporting, and Gateway as their central document management solution across two internal sites and with external collaborators throughout the UK and Europe.

‘Dotmatics allows whole project teams to access all our up-to-date project data in a single place, in an easily searchable format,’ said Professor Julian Blagg, head of Chemistry and deputy director of the Division of Cancer Therapeutics at The Institute of Cancer Research. ‘Dotmatics has brought us significant speed of access, a quality of decision making and greater volume of quality idea generation. We would not operate as effectively without such a system.’
