The NIH Science and Technology Research Infrastructure for Discovery, Experimentation, and Sustainability (STRIDES) Initiative allows NIH to explore the use of cloud environments to streamline NIH data use by partnering with commercial providers. NIH’s STRIDES Initiative provides cost-effective access to industry-leading partners to help advance biomedical research. These partnerships enable access to rich datasets and advanced computational infrastructure, tools, and services. The first of two STRIDES webinars, this meeting will focus on the NIH STRIDES Initiative as a whole. In the meeting we will provide an overview of the benefits of STRIDES, as well as how individuals and organizations can engage with STRIDES. We’ll also detail a few of STRIDES’ early successes.
