DIR Scientific Computing Experts at your Service

The Scientific Information Office works with investigators, core facility heads and DIR as a whole to strategically determine their computing needs, and develops short-term and long-term plans to meet these needs

The Office is responsible for researching, securing, custom designing and applying cutting edge IT solutions, products and support in order to facilitate a variety of biomedical computing needs ranging from computations, to data storage, to support in the clinical setting. In addition, the Office collaborates with sources outside the DIR including the Information Technology and Applications Center (ITAC) within the Office of Management, NHLBI, the Center for Information Technology, NIH and the Department of Clinical Research Informatics in the NIH Clinical Center as well as outside vendors.

The Scientific Information Officer is directly responsible for representing the IT interests of the DIR to NHLBI and NIH-wide committees and work-groups, and collaborates broadly across the organization with basic and clinical researchers.
