​SOLICITATION: NIH Immunology Database and Analysis Portal (ImmPort)

Posted (Last updated )

The Immunology Database and Analysis Portal (ImmPort) has been developed under the Bioinformatics Integration Support Contract (BISC) Phase II by the Northrop Grumman Information Technology Health Solutions team for the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Division of Allergy, Immunology, and Transplantation (DAIT).

ImmPort is a partnership between researchers at the University of California-San Francisco, Stanford University, the University of Buffalo, the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, and Northrop Grumman.

The goals of the ImmPort project are to:

Provide an open access platform for research data sharingCreate an integrated environment that broadens the usefulness of scientific data and advances hypothesis-driven and hypothesis-generating researchAccelerate scientific discovery while extending the value of scientific data in all areas of immunological researchPromote rapid availability of important findings, making new discoveries available to the research community for further analysis and interpretationProvide analysis tools to advance research in basic and clinical immunologyThe ImmPort project provides advanced information technology support in the archiving and exchange of scientific data for the diverse community of life science researchers supported by NIAID/DAIT and serves as a long-term, sustainable archive of research and clinical data. The core component of ImmPort is an extensive data warehouse containing experimental data and metadata describing the purpose of the study and the methods of data generation. The functionality of ImmPort will be expanded continuously over the life of the BISC project to accommodate the needs of expanding research communities. The shared research and clinical data, as well as the analytical tools in ImmPort are available to any researcher after registration.

The Immunology Database and Analysis Portal (ImmPort) contract solicitation is to support the ImmPort repository to deposit, archive and disseminate data from DAIT-funded and other immunology research.
