Award Description: The primary objective of the Translational Informatics and Data-management (TRIAD) Grid Project is to expand the scope and increase the pace of execution of programmatic efforts at The Ohio State University (OSU) Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) to disseminate a locally-developed gridcomputing platform to the CTSA national consortium. This platform, known as TRIAD, has been developed with the aim of enabling the conduct of multi-center clinical and translational research activities that involve the exchange, integration and analysis of large-scale, heterogeneous biomedical data sets. The availability of scalable and extensible electronic data interchange (EDI) platforms, such as TRIAD, has been cited in numerous reports as being critical to the performance of efficient, timely and high quality research in multisite or investigator settings. Such requirements are further emphasized when research is being conducted across the full translational spectrum from basic science to clinical research to clinical practice and public health, which by necessity involves a broad variety of information sources, stakeholders and analytic resources. We believe that the dissemination of TRIAD, and the associated best practices that have been generated by the OSU informatics team relative to its implementation and use, will serve to greatly enhance the clinical and translational science capacity of the national CTSA consortium, as well as the broader health and life science research communities. Furthermore, we believe that this effort represents a significant opportunity to overcome inherent information-centric translational blocks between basic science and clinical research (T1) as well as between clinical research and clinical practice or public health (T2), thus increasing the facility with which new biomedical knowledge may be translated into clinical and public health practice, and ultimately, yield better health outcomes for a broad variety of diseases.
