The Longwood Medical Area Research Data Management Working Group (LMA RDMWG) formed in response to identified unmet needs in biomedical and biological research data management. The group endeavors to create solutions, provide guidance, and develop standards and best practices to meet those identified unmet needs and anticipate future needs of our researchers in this area.
Mission: To develop best practices to meet current, and anticipate future, research data management needs of researchers across LMA. We strive to educate the community on data management and solve unique research challenges.
Our members represent a variety of expertise, including management of high-throughput screening and image data, information technology and research computing, educational programming, and library sciences, which allows us to cover the entire research data lifecycle and all communities on our campus. If you are interested in joining the RDMWG, contact us.
Our current projects include:
Conducting workshops aimed at educating LMA researchers in research data management best practices
Developing resources reflecting current data management approaches
Aggregating LMA resources relevant to research data management
Providing a forum for questions and feedback from our LMA research community
