Data Protection in Personalized Health (DPPH)

DPPH seeks to address the main scalability, privacy, security and ethical challenges of data sharing for enabling effective P4 medicine, by defining an optimal balance between usability, scalability and data protection, and deploying an appropriate set of computing tools to make it happen. The target result of the project will be a platform composed of software packages that seamlessly enable clinical and genomic data sharing and exploitation across a federation of medical institutions, hospitals and research laboratories across Switzerland in a scalable, secure, responsible and privacy-conscious way, and that can seamlessly integrate widespread cohort exploration tools (e.g., i2b2, TranSMART or SHRINE).

Personalized Medicine, Personalized Health Research Project is funded by the Strategic Focus Area Personalized Health and Related Technologies (PHRT) of the ETH Board
