Biomedical research gets its head into cloud computing
Date:8/17/2011

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- As cloud computing becomes the next big consumer techo trend, allowing people to access but not have to physically store everything from playlists to photos, it's also on the verge of revolutionizing the way research is done. Using the cloud model as inspiration, biomedical informatics scientists at The Ohio State University have created the Translational Research Informatics and Data management grid (TRIAD), a system which is helping researchers around the world access and analyze biomedical data at an unprecedented pace.

"With the current technology, a researcher might dedicate more than 100 hours to connect the dots between a set of tissue samples, the individual medical histories for the patients who provided those tissues, and then analyzing the group as a whole. With the TRIAD platform, researchers can now execute this type of search and analysis in minutes," says Philip R. O. Payne, chair of the department of biomedical informatics at The Ohio State University Medical Center.

The development of TRIAD started a year ago when a team led by Payne and Dr. Rebecca Jackson, principal investigator of Ohio State's Clinical and Translational Science Award, received funding from the National Institutes of Health to build a new system to meet the growing and unique needs of translational researchers. TRIAD has been so revolutionary for the biomedical informatics field, that the research team recently received an additional $300,000 in funding to complete the grant's specific aims and help extend and support its implementation at other academic research institutions.

How it Works

Cloud computing is a term used to describe a system that allows easy access to a shared pool of resources (e.g., applications, servers, storage, networks) that can be quickly allocated and released with minimal effort by an administrator. The "cloud" acts like a virtual supercomputer that can pull together a cluster of other computers
