Abstract:

High-speed computer networks are vital to biomedical research yet the infrastructure supporting network connectivity remains unevenly distributed. This workshop joined together biomedical researchers networking experts and computer scientists Appendices I and 2 to identify key challenges to improving network connectivity and utilization across a broad spectrum of users including those with access to cutting-edge networks and those with little or no connectivity. A draft white paper developed by NCRR TATRC and Internet2 staff with help from experts in relevant fields was circulated to participants prior to the workshop to frame discussions at the executive session. The charge to the group at the executive session was to identify key needs and priorities for cyberinfrastructure development during the next 3 to 5 years and to examine best practices for implementing collaborative networks driven by research opportunities across the health research spectrum 1 Basic Biomedical and Behavioral Research 2 Clinical and Translational Research 3 Health Care Quality, Safety and Effectiveness Research 4 Health Disparities in Underserved Populations 5 Public Health Monitoring, Biosurveillance, and Situational Awareness 6 Interdisciplinary Research Training and Education Health Information 7 Dissemination to Community Providers and Patients.
