Abstract

This document describes a plan for usage of the "Reserva Técnica para Infraestrutura Institucional de Pesquisa" granted by FAPESP. CIPE-AC Camargo Cancer Center (Center for International Research) is a building dedicated to scientific research, and houses laboratories, administrative sectors and support teams. The IT infrastructure, consisting of network folders, email, backup, and information systems, is a key resource for CIPE operations. Over the next five years, a huge amount of genome sequence data, proteomes and exomes will be generated by institutional and thematic projects to find molecular changes that may be therapeutic targets in cancer as well as molecular mechanisms associated with tumorigenesis. In addition, projects focused on identification of therapeutic response, prognostic factors and disease recurrence biomarkers will be developed and will generate a huge demand for data processing and storage. Also in 2016 it will be implemented a scientific database policy requiring deposit of clinical and molecular database for all students in our graduate program. The Institution proposes the improvement of the data processing equipment implanted last years and execution of services to allow continued growth of our infrastructure. This will allow to meet the projected demands, and implementation of software tools permitting proper management of databases of research projects linked to graduate students and to our medical staff. It is also requested storage cabinets for flammable and combustible liquids. This equipment is absolutely necessary for the safety of the lab space ad researchers. (AU)
