UF Health Joins Research Network Developing a Data Repository on Infectious Diseases

With funding from a five-year, $6.7 million National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant, researchers at UF Health have joined the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health and other academic centers to form a collaborative research network focused on improving global knowledge of infectious diseases. 

The NIH originally launched the Models of Infectious Disease Agent Study, or MIDAS, network in 2004 to help protect the nation from the threat of infectious diseases. The Pitt School of Medicine now will serve as the MIDAS Network Coordination Center, standardizing and uploading hundreds of existing infectious disease datasets into a central location to make it easier for researchers to share, find and use the data and software.
