    DescriptionCAMBRIDGE, Mass., November 06, 2017 – Seven Bridges, the leading biomedical data analysis company, today announced that it has been selected by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to support the NIH Data Commons Pilot Phase. As a corporate service provider, Seven Bridges will build upon its expertise delivering the NCI Cancer Genomics Cloud to advance NIH’s vision for a virtual biomedical data discovery and computing environment employing FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) data sharing principles. The Data Commons Pilot Phase is NIH’s latest effort to accelerate biomedical research through informatics.

    Seven Bridges will lead a team consisting of Repositive Ltd., a UK-based software company developing tools to improve access to genomic research data; Elsevier, the informatics analytics business specializing in science and health; and the Boston Veterans Affair Research Institute, which has created the Million Veteran Program, the largest genomic database in the world. Together, they are forming a private-public consortium called FAIR4CURES.
