The Data Management and Analysis Core Takes Off at MIT

By Bevin P. Engelward

Director, MIT Superfund Research Program

With support from the NIEHS, MIT SRP is developing new infrastructure that enables data to be combined in new ways and that ensures FAIR practices. An exciting development is the ability to upload metadata in real time for wide ranging data sets, including environmental as well as biological data. The new Data Management Core will build off of the open access SEEK platform to create a system where researchers from vastly different fields can share and interpret each other’s metadata, facilitating collaborations that are key to SRP success.
