The National Center for Data to Health (CD2H), a multi-institutional consortium led by OHSU, is a $25 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to support the use of health data, algorithms and information systems to bridge basic science and clinical research and to foster collaboration across more than 50 medical research institutions within the national Clinical and Translational Science Awards network
The CD2H aims to support a vibrant and evolving informatics ecosystem including: support and enhancement of a collaborative informatics community; development of Good Data Practice (GDP); promotion of software standards for interoperability; growth of collaborative innovation across informatics tools, methods, and processes; advancement of cutting edge biomedical research informatics; data science education for CTSA Program researchers; and novel methods and tools for the evaluation of the impact of these activities to enhance health care through data and informatics. The CD2H supports the creation of collaboratively developed sustainable infrastructure via the axes of open data, open software, and open resources. Underpinning these efforts are innovative models for community coordination, education, and community challenges as mechanisms to stimulate new and impactful tools and methods.
The Assistant Director of CD2H oversees the coordination, administration, and engagement of all aspects of the Center for Data to Health, including planning, organizing, staffing, and governing program activities and is a member of the Inter-institutional Translational and Integrative Sciences Lab (tislab.org).
