Executive Summary

Several Extramural Kidney Program clinical research networks have put Digital Pathology Repositories (DPRs) into place with digital whole slide images (WSI) available to support standardization of classical diagnostic criteria across clinical sites. A developing line of investigation is the mining of these digital data sets for discovery of unique computer visualized (pathomic) features which correlate with disease. KUH has the opportunity to renew current NIDDK resources and utilization of National Cancer Institute (NCI) infrastructure to maintain a user-friendly archive of kidney tissue WSI that can be deployed in tool development and kidney research.
