Researcher Auth Service (RAS)

Researcher Auth Service Initiative

Researcher Auth Service (RAS), sponsored by The Office of Data Science Strategy, is a service provided by NIH's Center for Information Technology to facilitate access to NIH's open and controlled data assets and repositories, in a consistent and user-friendly manner. The RAS initiative is advancing data infrastructure and ecosystem goals defined in the NIH Strategic Plan for Data Science. RAS has adopted the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) standards for integration of researcher-focused applications and data repositories over the OIDC platform.
