Through our years of supporting BSD research, the CRI has become a valuable source of expertise in custom informatics programming, large-scale data analysis, and data modeling and interoperability. This knowledge base, alongside our state-of-the-art computing resources and our rich clinical data warehouse, now allows us to participate in major, collaborative research projects that are changing the face of health care.

Our commitment to the projects outlined here takes the impact of our work far beyond the University as we contribute to creating opportunities for collaborative research; making health care more personalized, effective, affordable, and accessible; and improving lives.
