NDA is a cloud-based data repository for human subjects data that securely makes available for secondary analysis clinical, phenotypic, imaging, and omics data from over 500,000 subjects across over 1,000 research projects. NDA houses data repositories for all NIMH-funded clinical research, the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) Study, the Human Connectome Projects, the Osteoarthritis Initiative, and the new National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism Data Archive (NIAAADA). Dr. Rosen will also discuss NDA’s data harmonization and management strategies, access governance, a pilot cloud credits program, and integration with the NIH federated data ecosystem.

The Data Science Seminar Series presents talks from innovators in the research and informatics communities both within and outside of NCI.
