Biomedical Engineering Research: Datasets

Selected NIH Datasets & Data Repositories

  • CardioVascular Research Grid
    The CardioVascular Research Grid (CVRG) project is creating an infrastructure for sharing cardiovascular data and data analysis tools. To access the datasets currently available, go to:

  • PhysioNet
    PhysioNet offers free web access to large collections of recorded physiologic signals (PhysioBank) and related open-source software (PhysioToolkit).

  • Human Connectome Project
    The Human Connectome Project is mapping human brain circuitry in 1200 healthy adults using cutting-edge methods of noninvasive neuroimaging. Imaging, behavioral data, and genomic data are all made freely available to the research community as the data is collected. In addition, other laboratories using similar data collection techniques are releasing their data via this web site.

Datasets Related to Healthcare

CDC Data & Statistics

  • National Center for Health Statistics
    Maintained by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), provides access to data sets, statistics, surveys, and publications.

  • CDC Data Sets and Statistics
    This is the major link to data and statistics on CDC's website. It is arranged by Topic and by Tools & Resources.

  • CDC FastStats
    Quick access to data from the National Center for Health Statistics organized by topics, which include diseases and conditions, injuries, life stages and populations, health care and insurance, births, and deaths.
