Recently, we have founded an international consortium MSIDETECT. Together with multiple project partners in and beyond Europe, we are aiming to perform a large multicenter validation of deep learning based methods to detect microsatellite instability (MSI) in colorectal cancer directly from routine histological images. Stay tuned for publications from our consortium and find more information on the consortium partners at http://www.msidetect.eu. If you would like to join our consortium, please get in touch! We are constantly looking for new academic and industry partners.
