The European project Health-e-Child (IST 027749, http://www.health-e-child.org/ ), coordinated by Siemens, Germany, aims to create an IT platform to share pediatric knowledge and clinical data based on grid technologies. The project currently brings together eight European countries and intends to integrate heterogeneous biomedical data from three clinical specialities (cardiology, neurology and rheumatology) coming from three pediatric hospitals in Europe (Hôpital Necker in Paris, France, Giannina Gaslini institute in Genoa, Italy, and Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, Great-Britain). This integration should lead to a better understanding of the pathologies studied, and, in the long term, provide real tools to help pediatricians make the right decisions. In this project, the role of the Asclepios team is to model the congenital heart pathologies of the right ventricle and the grown of brain tumors.
