New biomedical technologies need to be integrated for research on complex diseases.
It is necessary to combine and analyze information coming from different sources: genetic-molecular, clinical data and environmental risks. This paper presents the work carried on by the INBIOMED research network within the field of biomedical image analysis. The overall objective is to respond to the growing demand of advanced information processing methods for: developing analysis tools, creating knowledge structure and validating them in pharmacogenetics, epidemiology, molecular and image based diagnosis research environments. All the image processing tools and data are integrated and work within a web services-based application, the so called INBIOMED platform. Finally, several biomedical research labs offered real data and validate the network tools and methods in the most prevalent pathologies: cancer, cardiovascular and neurological. This work provides a unique biomedical information processing platform, open to the incorporation of data coming from other feature disease networks.
