Workshop on Translational Research Infrastructure hosted on the SURFsara HPC Cloud

Held at BioMedBridges symposium ‘Open bridges for life science data’

At the BioMedBridges symposium ‘Open bridges for life science data’, which was held on 17 and 18 November in Hinxton, UK, a workshop was organised on Translational Research Infrastructures.

The workshop was co-chaired by Stefan Klein (Euro‐BioImaging, Erasmus MC, TraIT), Morris Swertz (BBMRI, UMCG), and Freek de Bruijn (EATRIS, VUmc and NKI, TraIT).

During this workshop a hands-on introduction to IT infrastructure for translational biomedical research was given, including the “bridges” that were jointly built in the BioMedBridges project. These bridges allow medical researchers to submit, use, manage and combine imaging data, molecular data, and clinical data (including biosamples: query biobanks to find samples and related data that are relevant for their/your research). Five tutorials could be followed to see some of the bridges in action.
