... , health equity research, data science training, and data infrastructure." The NIH issued an RFI on "current challenges and opportunities of using cloud computing at universities and colleges" to increase cloud computing access in "diverse biomedical research institutions." The RFI asks for responses to topics such as "barriers to adopt cloud computing including, but not limited to, training and infrastructure gaps, technical barriers, social challenges, perceived risks, and costs." It also requests information on "opportunities and potential impact on biomedical, clinical, behavioral and social science research from greater use of cloud computing."
