Arcus Library Science Team at Forefront of Discovery: Q&A With Spencer Lamm, MLIS

Start new collaborations. Find valuable data. Create cohorts that can seed new research endeavors. These are some of the key drivers for Arcus, an internal strategic program designed for researchers to more intuitively navigate clinical and research data produced by Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Research Institute. Essentially, that means making the promising wealth of data in Arcus discoverable.
