Title: Development of Cloud and Mobile Health Apps for FEDGEN Platform

Project type : Development Project (2 years)

Abstract :
Sub-saharan Africa has hitherto been burdened with multiple health issues, such as perennial malaria and the emerging epidemic of breast cancer for women, and prostate cancer for men. These health issues are not properly tackled due to the paucity of applications that are built using indigenous genomics (and other “omics”) datasets tha underlie these diseases. One of the specific aims of CApIC-ACE in the ACE Impact project is the development of Federated Genomics (FEDGEN) cloud computing infrastructure (i.e. datacenter) to bring home genomic based research and development to the African populace. Hinged on the unique partnership between CApIC-ACE and CEA-MITIC (with their academic and industry partners), this development project aims to design, develop and deploy cloud and mobile apps with integrated edge AI-based services for disseminating health information related to malaria, breast and prostate cancer on the FEDGEN platform. These apps will also contain a module for curating, archiving and accessing of datasets for research and education. Consequently, this project will culminate in apps deployment and commercialisation; and capacity building via internships, joint students’ supervision and postgraduate degrees.
