At the NCI s ceremony in 2005, Dr. Marguerite Raaen was honored with a Scientific Achievement Merit Award for her central contribution to the NCI s first Integration / Implementation (I2) of a cancer imaging repository, and her scientific leadership in developing a suite of enterprise-wide imaging initiatives that support NCI Director Dr. Andrew von Eschenbach s goal to cure cancer by 2015. The unique aspect of this award to Dr. Raaen is that it is normally given for medical or pharmaceutical breakthroughs. Her award for computer science breakthroughs recognized the very significant leadership and technology accomplishments in architecting the system, programming the functions, and negotiating the kinds of agreements required for this shared data repository across 60 US cancer research centers. This national radiological repository for storing clinical data will enable more researchers to contribute and utilize the latest in national cancer research
