UCSD Center for Research in Biological Systems

The NITRC website and NITRC Image Repository are hosted by the Center for Research in Biological Systems (CRBS), an organized research unit at UCSD, which facilitates an interdisciplinary infrastructure in which people from biology, medicine, chemistry, and physics can work with those from computer science and information technologies in collaborative research. Leading the CRBS team hosting NITRC is Dr. Jeffrey Grethe. CRBS researchers have been at the forefront of neuroinformatics with involvement in NSF's National Partnership for Advanced Computational Infrastructure, one of the first projects to provide an advanced cyber-infrastructure for the scientific community, to playing a key role in the building of the Biomedical Informatics Research Network and the National Database for Autism Research, and to many high profile informatics projects such as the Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF), the NIDDK Information Network (dkNET), and the Research Resource Identification Initiative. CRBS consists of a unique and well-established partnership between computer scientists, biomedical scientists, and engineers whose application of information technologies is accelerating the pace of discovery in health research.
