The National Institutes of Health has partnered with Amazon Web Services to help agency-backed researchers incorporate cloud-based technologies into biomedical research efforts.
AWSÂ said TuesdayÂ itÂ will host various NIH data sets, such as those covered by privacy and security policies, as part of theÂ Science and Technology Research Infrastructure for Discovery, Experimentation, and SustainabilityÂ initiative.
Teresa Carlson,Â vice president ofÂ Amazon Web Services‘ worldwide public sector business and aÂ four-time Wash100 awardee, said the company intends to provide access to data that can help STRIDES researchers to further study and identify potential treatments for multiple diseases.
The company expects to include agency data in the Public Dataset Program, which offersÂ cloud-optimized information on genomics, health and life sciences.
AWS added it will equip NIH researchers withÂ computing, analytics and database toolsÂ to analyze genomic sequences, link molecular measurements to heart conditions and find cures to nearly fatal conditions, among other things.
