As part of the NIH Strategic Plan for Data Science, the NIH is committed to making datasets resulting from NIH investigator publications more accessible. Researchers sometimes find themselves with a requirement to share data, but cannot identify a specific repository to use. This situation often occurs when researchers have research datasets underlying publication figures and tables, or data not associated with a publication, they... Read more
The CDA will allow users to aggregate data via queries across the NCI Cancer Research Data Commons (CRDC) nodes, NCI Data Coordinating Center (DCC) repositories, and other NIH data repositories.
The CDA is a critical component of the National Cancer Data Ecosystem, a key recommendation from the... Read more

There is growing recognition that infrastructure supporting modern science--including scalable and sustainable Learning Health Systems and Precision Medicine--requires biomedical knowledge to be routinely represented in computer readable forms as a complement to the customary human readable forms. This recognition has given rise to a national movement to “Mobilize Computable Biomedical Knowledge” (MCBK). You can learn more about computable knowledge and the movement to mobilize it at ...
