The National Institutes of Health (NIH) provide leadership and direction for research programs aimed at enhancing health, lengthening life, and reducing illness and disability. Data is an important ingredient for—and a product of—these projects. Historically, each program has managed the data it produces independently. Among the NIH institutes, a program called the Common Fund sponsors a portfolio of ambitious initiatives, each of which generates biomedical data of high value to the research community.

During the month of July Globus transferred over 800 Terabytes of data on Comet, a dedicated NSF funded eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) cluster at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC). While Comet is now officially retired, users will still have access to the Comet filesystems via Globus to facilitate data migration.

 Helping to Prepare our Researchers of Tomorrow

Over the past few years Globus Labs has participated in two student summer lab programs at the University of Chicago - the Center for Data and Computing (CDAC) Summer Lab Program, and the BigDataX Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program, which is funded by the NSF. This year the two programs include 65 students, and five of the students are working with Globus Labs.
