Abstract

The purpose of this project is to exploit the potential given by the connection of two fields apparently distant in which research is recently making very rapid progress: Immuno-Oncology (I-O) and Spatial Data Science. The connection of these two fields has led the research group to propose the building of an I-O Geographic Information System. In section 1 of this paper, we explain the advantages of linking I-O and Spatial Data Science, in section 2, we explain the purposes and the objectives of the project, in section 3, we describe the phases of the Geographical Information System (GIS) implementation and in section 4, we indicate some main issues and future perspectives. In particular, in section 3.1 we describe some preliminary steps in the building of the project’s database such as the collection of the Italian I-O Network Projects and the I-O excellence centres.
