The Childhood Cancer Data Initiative (CCDI) will host its first webinar of 2024, exploring two research data sharing platforms from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. 

On Tuesday, Jan. 23 from 1 to 2 p.m., Clay McLeod, director of product development and engineering, and Dr. Xin Zhou, director of data visualization—both in St. Jude’s department of computational biology—will demonstrate PeCan v2 and the St. Jude Survivorship Portal. They will delve into navigating the platforms and show how the tools can enhance research and advance knowledge of childhood cancers. Attendees may ask questions during a Q&A session. 

McLeod wears a red, blue and white plaid shirt and smiles at the camera. Behind him is a window with a cityscape beyond.
