Congratulations to OHSU Library!

Chris Shaffer and the Oregon Health & Science University Library are part of a national consortium recently awarded NIH funding to implement a Federated National Informatics Network.  This web-based initiative, called the eagle-i Consortium,  will be developed by OHSU and 8 other universities–led by Harvard Medical School.  Funding is from the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR), part of the NIH.

As one of 2 major awards made NCRR, Director Barbara Alving, M.D. states: “The infrastructure created and implemented through these awards has the potential to greatly facilitate the pace of biomedical research nationwide.”

For more information about the project,  see announcements on OHSU’s library website, and  the Harvard Clinical and Translational Science Center.

    Wow! Way to go, Chris. Pretty impressive guy and important. I was very impressed by this passage:

    “National networking provides opportunities for scientists to collaborate in new, exciting ways to improve abilities to uncover underlying pathways and mechanisms of biology and to develop new diagnostics, treatments and prevention strategies,” said NCRR Director Barbara Alving, M.D. “The infrastructure created and implemented through these awards has the potential to greatly facilitate the pace of biomedical research nationwide.”

    As an Oregonian, I am proud of you and as someone who cares about medical research, I am grateful to you.
