When it comes to large clinical trials and population studies, few organizations can match Population Health Research Institute (PHRI). Canada’s premiere global health research institute originally focused on cardiovascular disease and diabetes studies, but its research has broadened to include population health, genomics, perioperative medicine, dysglycemia, stroke, thrombosis, cardiovascular surgery, renal, obesity, childhood obesity, bone and trauma, knowledge translation, and implementation science.
The sole purpose of PHRI’s infrastructure is to enable and facilitate research. The network supports the activities of 10,000 on-campus users and more than 400,000 users around the world. Big Data, such as data associated with population genomics, was pushing the existing network to its limits, and PHRI wants to connect its Big Data analysis capabilities to centralized systems that are run by Compute Canada and funded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation.
