Enabling and Promoting Inter-Institutional Clinical and Genomic Research Un-Meeting


2022 CLIC-Sponsored Hub-Hosted Un-Meeting

The Genomic Information Commons (GIC) is an NCATS/NIH funded continuously updating, queryable, federated system enabling and promoting clinical and genomic research across eight pediatric hospitals. A GIC goal is to harmonize IT, regulatory and workflow components across sites for sharing genomic and phenotypic data (including EHR data on millions of patients), as well as biospecimen metadata on broadly consented cohorts.

At this potentially transformative moment, GIC sites seek innovative and collaborative ideas from across the CTSA Consortium to evaluate acceptability and scalability of the prototype system, and to ideate around next steps and future directions.

Some topics this Un-meeting will address:

  • Using and analyzing federated genome and phenome data
  • Aligning consenting processes across the Consortium
  • GIC research topic opportunities – low hanging fruit
  • Facilitation of inter-institutional research collaboration
  • GIC cloud-hosted data and analytic environments and technologies for local institutional research
  • CLIC
  • Clinical and Translational Science
  • Un-Meeting
  • Genomics
  • Clinical Research
