BD2K Centers

The BD2K Centers program has established 11 Centers of Excellence for Big Data Computing and two Centers that are collaborative projects with the NIH Common Fund LINCS program, the LINCS-BD2K Perturbation Data Coordination and Integration Center, and the Broad Institute LINCS Center for Transcriptomics. The centers are located all across the United States. They are large-scale projects aiming to develop new approaches, methods, software tools, and related resources.  The Centers will also provide training to advance Big Data science in the context of biomedical research. The 13 BD2K Centers function with the other BD2K grantees as a consortium and collaborate with one another, with the purpose of furthering every aspect of the field of biomedical data science research.
