Dear all,

This is a interesting and exciting collection of folks interested in data sharing.  I’m a data curator and data deposition guide for ImmPort (, a NIH NIAID funded data repository to collect, standardize and FAIR share host immunology data sets for researchers funded by NIH and other funding sources.  I serve as a liasion between standards groups, shared data users, data providers, software developers and database administrators.  I look forward to the discussions and development of data sharing standards.

Health and sanity,



P.S. I’m working on adding RDA emails to my NIH email white list (many seem to be going to spam list by default). I’m try to reply to any emails as soon as I can see them. 🙁
