Translator Projects

With the goal of developing a biomedical data translator to integrate the vast amounts of currently available medical research data to accelerate the development of new treatments, NCATS issued awards to form a project team of experts from 16 leading universities and other research institutions. Through a series of feasibility assessments, this team will examine components and test solutions for specific aspects of the Translator to help define the infrastructure requirements needed to support diverse data types and demonstrate the potential impact of new analytical tools that promote the discovery of relationships for the research community.
