Definition A national initiative to advance biomedica A national initiative to advance biomedical research through data sharing and online collaboration that provides data-sharing infrastructure, software tools, strategies and advisory services. BIRN provides a user-driven, software-based framework for research teams to share significant quantities of data – rapidly, securely and privately – across geographic distance and/or incompatible computing systems. Groups may choose whether to share data internally or with external audiences. In either scenario, hardware and data remain under the control of individual user groups. They also offer data-sharing software tools specific to biomedical research, best practices references, expert advice and other resources. BIRN actively is developing new data-sharing tools, authorization capabilities, and knowledge engineering tools to help researchers make sense of new information in unique ways. The main BIRN site is at the Information Sciences Institute at USC with collaborators at the University of Chicago, the Massachusetts General Hospital, University of California, Irvine and University of California, Los Angeles. and University of California, Los Angeles.
