Google Cloud and NIH to venture out in biomedical research

Technology Inceptions

Google Cloud is working with the National Institutes of Health to make select NIH-funded datasets available to users in a secure environment for biomedical research.

Biomedical research faces enormous challenges as the volume of genomic, transcriptomic, metabolomic, phenotypic, and other data generated in research labs across the world continues to grow.

“NIH is in a unique position to bring together academic and innovation industry partners to create a biomedical data ecosystem that maximizes the use of NIH-supported biomedical research data for the greatest benefit to human health,” said NIH Principal Deputy Director Lawrence A. Tabak. “The STRIDES Initiative aims to maximize the number of researchers working to provide the greatest number of solutions to advancing health and reducing the burden of disease.”
