September 2020 DAIT Council-Approved Concepts

Concepts represent early planning stages for program announcements, requests for applications, notices of special interest, or solicitations for Council's input. If NIAID publishes an initiative from one of these concepts, we link to it below. To find initiatives, go to Opportunities & Announcements.

NB: Council approval does not guarantee that a concept will become an initiative.

The Immunology Database and Analysis Portal (ImmPort)

Request for Proposals—proposed FY 2022 initiative

Contact: Emily Bannister

Objective:

  1. To support the maintenance and improvement of the ImmPort data repository, which hosts data primarily from a select set of NIAID’s research studies and shares the hosted data with the research community.
  2. To transform the shared data into a user-friendly resource to enable reuse of the data to gain new insights and findings to advance immunology research.

Description: This renewal will continue to support the following provisions to the research community:

  • Continue to improve ImmPort as a centralized immunology data repository with templates, user manuals, and tools for researchers to manage data submission and data sharing
  • User-friendly web interfaces and tools for query, download, integration, and analyses of shared data
  • Bioinformatics support for data submission to ImmPort from DAIT-funded research programs
  • Implementation of data and metadata standards and data quality control procedures to facilitate data integration and data reuse
  • Training, tutorials, and other outreach/educational endeavors to promote research data sharing
  • Ensure flexibility to adapt to new research community’s needs for data sharing
