Driving data access.
Under Norris’ leadership, NIH’s Science and Technology Research Infrastructure for Discovery, Experimentation and Sustainability (STRIDES) Initiative facilitated global access to NIH-curated data to drive COVID-19 research. She directed the use of cloud products to host a repository of next-generation sequence data that was crucial to understanding and responding to the current and future pandemics. STRIDES also enabled development of a cloud-hosted COVID Digital Pathology Repository to help the global biomedical community rapidly scale research in the race to develop a vaccine. Norris built innovative partnerships with multiple cloud service providers so NIH-funded researchers could choose their preferred cloud partner, which ensured flexibility and encouraged participation.
