Join me for a martini as I chat with Matthew "Matter" Trunnell, CIO of the Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center, about NIH's multimillion dollar endeavor that will change biomedical science as we know it - creating the Data Commons.
The overarching goal of the NIH Data Commons is to accelerate new biomedical discoveries by developing and testing a cloud-based platform where investigators can store, share, access, and interact with digital objects (data, software, etc.) generated from biomedical and behavioral research. By connecting the digital objects and making them accessible, the Data Commons is intended to allow novel scientific research that was not possible before, including hypothesis generation, discovery, and validation.
