CARDIOCARE: An Integrated Ecosystem for the Management of Elderly Multimorbid Patients with Breast Cancer Therapy Induced Cardiac Toxicity
Friday, September 22 | 10:00 - 10:15 | Future Vista Meeting Room
During the last decades, advancements in breast cancer treatment have contributed to the reduction of mortality. However, patients undergoing the proposed treatment experience serious side effects, such as cardiotoxicity, which is one of the main causes of death in breast cancer patients. The CARDIOCARE project, funded by the Horizon 2020 programme, is an innovative, multidisciplinary, and integrated solution for breast cancer patients, which designs and develops advanced practices for predicting, monitoring, and managing cardiotoxicity. Using machine learning techniques, an innovative, cost-effective risk prediction model is being developed based on the collection of personalized medical data. The project involves 12 partners from 7 different countries. The consortium consists of a multidisciplinary team of clinical cardiologists, oncologists, psychologists, biologists, bioinformaticians and IT specialists. The coordinator of the project is the University of Ioannina, which participates with the Unit of Medical Technology and Intelligent Information Systems, led by Prof. Dimitris Fotiadis.
