SAIC-Frederick Inc. and RemedyMD are merging efforts to implement RemedyMD’s Investigate Integrated Research Management System software at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Advanced Technology Program. NCI researchers will be able to manage and analyze large amounts of research data for a very worthy cause.

This interesting news was brought to our attention by Digital Journal in their article, “SAIC-Frederick, Inc. and RemedyMD, Inc. Collaborate to Enhance Research Management Systems in Support of Cancer Research.” This is part of NCI’s Advanced Technology Partnerships Initiative, which aims to further NCI’s mission by speeding the translation of research discoveries into new treatments for cancer and related diseases.

Investigate offers experiment design and execution, structured and unstructured data management, and biospecimen management and is based on the Mosaic technology. Mosaic weaves together fully web-enabled user-interface technology, persistent data storage, and interface, querying, and reporting tools, all interacting through a rules-based ontology to ensure data harmonization. We definitely like data harmonization.
