Data Infrastructure


Data Infrastructure

Supporting a highly efficient and effective biomedical research data infrastructure is critical to achieving NIH’s mission of applying knowledge gained through research to improving health.

NIH is leveraging cloud services through partnerships with academic institutions and industry to facilitate secure data storage and broad access to biomedical datasets. NIH is also developing shared identity and access management tools to allow researchers to connect to and seamlessly analyze data across NIH data platforms and resources.
