Information and knowledge management are at the center of the modern clinical research enterprise. The Biomedical Informatics program enables researchers to find collaborators and resources that match their needs and interests; study populations across multiple Harvard University affiliates; receive state-of-the-art education in the use of computational tools; and increase the cohesion of our research community across multiple institutional boundaries.
Several of our tools (e.g., SHRINE, Harvard Catalyst Profiles) have been widely adopted by other CTSAs. eagle-i, a national biomedical resource discovery system, is being developed in partnership with COBRE, INBRE, RCMI and RTRN institutions.
