Jack London, PhD, is a Research Professor of Cancer Biology at Thomas Jefferson University, and Director of Informatics in Jefferson’s Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center. He has been engaged for over 40 years in biomedical informatics research and system development in the domains of bioinformatics, medical informatics, and health care information technology. In the 1970’s at the University of Pennsylvania’s Department of Computer and Information Science, his research focus was in bioinformatics, specifically the computer simulation of biochemical systems.
In the 1980’s his clinical informatics focus became cancercentric, as at the Fox Chase Cancer Center he worked on hospital information systems development, telemedicine projects, and clinical trials management systems.
A current project integrates clinical, biospecimen, genomic, cancer registry, and experimental data to support researchers in hypothesis generation and cohort definition, including the prediction of patient accrual to proposed clinical trials. For this project Dr. London has developed ontologies for biospecimen, cancer registry, and molecular diagnostic (genomic test) data.
