Biomedical Research Informatics Shared Resource (BRISR)

The Biomedical Research Informatics Shared Resource (BRISR) provides data services to investigators in support of translational research at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.

The primary focus of the BRISR is to provide structured access to and use of real-time reliable clinical data for the advancement of non-interventional studies at Roswell Park.

The BRISR provides the infrastructure and processes to establish and monitor data standards, quality, integration, and distribution across Roswell Park. The BRISR office develops and implements tools and methods to streamline the collection, storage, processing, and distribution of data to researchers.

In addition to improving access to and use of data, the BRISR Office works closely with biobanks to annotate biospecimens and facilitate the process for patient cohorts identification and case selections. The BRISR Office supports the data needs of investigators for Non-Human Subject Research.

The BRISR provides the leadership and the resources necessary to meet data management needs for each specific research project in a cost effective manner.
