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. The ODSS has two key objectives to advance data infrastructure:

  • Optimizing data storage and security.
  • Connecting existing NIH data systems.

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

  • The STRIDES Initiative

    Harnessing the power of the cloud in support of biomedical research
  • Identity and Access Management

    Coordinating trans-NIH approaches to user authentication and authorization
