develops a governance model and systems to connect biobanks and cohort data to facilitate translational research and equitable use of limited sample data.

connects the Open Science community and international regulatory and surveillance bodies to data generators to facilitate conversations around data sharing and access.

provides management support and facilitates the dissemination of advances in repositories for OMICS data to facilitate personalized medicine approaches to infectious disease.
