It is a contradictory time for the scientific community: while it is acknowledged there is a need for genomic data use to implement precision medicine, data security regulations are becoming stricter and can limit progress. Communication challenges have been stated as one of the biggest bottlenecks in seeking data and samples for pharmaceutical research. Academic research groups and industry alike demand an ecosystem that facilitates the sharing of data in a secure environment. That is why we at BC Platforms have created a modern tool that brings together biobanks and pharmaceutical companies to engage in new forms of research and collaboration. We call it RQUEST.
