This chapter describes how the Biomedical Informatics Research Network (BIRN) infrastructure initiative is supported by the U.S. National Institutes of Health. It reveals how the BIRN promotes large data and computer-based distributed collaborations in the field of biomedical science with related information technology innovations. BIRN is composed of a number of scientific collaboratories engaged in investigating the brain imaging and genetics of human neurological disorders along with the related animal models. The BIRN Coordinating Centre has been established to develop, implement, and support the necessary infrastructure for fulfilling the objectives of the collaborative research groups.

Keywords:   infrastructure initiative, collaboratories, innovations, neurological disorders
