With U-M Precision Health’s new Analytics Platform, researchers across campus now have access to genetic data, clinical data, and tools previously available only to Michigan Medicine faculty and other level-two password holders. This platform, developed by Precision Health’s Data Analytics & IT workgroup, provides campus-wide access to research tools such as DataDirect and services such as consultation with scientific facilitators.

“This is an exciting new platform available to campus researchers with a level-one password; no level-two password required,” said Precision Health Co-Director Sachin Kheterpal. “It’s not just software, it’s people also: scientific facilitators to help you understand what the data is, and what it can and can’t do. We’ve got genetic and clinical data linked together, and people to help you through the process,” he added.
