Advances in technology applied to medical and clinical research have led to the availability of large volumes of data from a variety of research studies and clinical environments. This data can be processed, integrated, federated, stored and analyzed to present opportunities for new understanding of diseases and treatments and has the potential to help save lives and billions of dollars throughout the health care system as well as, potentially helping create new products, methodologies and jobs.

The High Performance Computing Virtual Laboratory (HPCVL) is pleased to host this symposium to allow opportunities and issues surrounding the collection and use of medical research data to be explored.
