Adding Legacy Clinical Data to the Federal Interagency Traumatic Brain Injury (FITBIR) Informatics System

Submission Date: October 1, 2013

Award Ceiling: $100.000

The goal of this initiative is to accelerate the process of building a large, rich database for meta- and secondary analysis of traumatic brain injury (TBI) clinical research data. TBI is a complex, major health problem and addressing many of the critical gaps in knowledge requires large data sets. To this end, the Department of Defense (DOD) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are collaborating to create and advance the Federal Interagency TBI Research (FITBIR) Informatics System. FITBIR was launched in July 2011 and is currently accepting data from new research studies. However, accrual of new data takes time. To accelerate the process of populating FITBIR with data, the NIH is seeking applications from investigators who are interested in archiving their legacy data or federating their existing database with FITBIR.
