2009 Summit on translational bioinformatics  
The field of informatics has been going through a rapid change over the past decade. New technologies such as grid computing[1-5] and knowledge anchored data, combined with major funding and growing community thrusts aimed at creating a richer multi-institutional research and clinical environment such as caBIG™[6-8] (Cancer Bioinformatics Grid), BIRN[9] (Bioinformatics Research Network), and CTSA(Clinical and Translational Science Awards) have lead to new ways to bring together information

This had lead to service oriented architectures based developments in creating semantically interoperable data and analytical services to increase speed, efficiency, and outcome of clinical and research efforts spanning the fields of medicine. The TRIAD (Translational Informatics and Data Management Grid) System, which will be used as the middleware system enabling the OSU CTSA to create a scalable, secure, and knowledge anchored data sharing environment, will adopt and adapt the caGrid infrastructure designed for the caBIG™ program.
