What is this resource?


FABRIC, short for Flexible Architecture for Building Research Informatics Collaborations, is an environment that offers a service-oriented research toolbox which investigators, clinicians, and patient advocates can use to easily access a wide array of data repositories integrated with customizable query tools. The scalability of the environment allows the replication of its key elements (e.g., Galaxy, REDCap, R, HealthFacts, Office 365) making them available simultaneously to multiple users with varying requirements for data, or its manipulation, analysis, and reporting. FABRIC is a secure research cloud platform that readily interconnects clinicians, researchers, and the patient community across the national CTR network without disruptive alterations to research workflows or patient information finding. Its release is upcoming!
