The Center for Expanded Data Annotation and Retrieval (CEDAR) is a collaboration between Stanford Medicine, University of Oxford, Northrop Grumman, and Yale University. They have developed information technologies that make authoring complete metadata much more manageable, and that facilitate using the metadata in further scientific and medical research. The project goal is to help investigators achieve the promise of Big Data. To do this, we built a system that uses computers to make life better for biomedical researchers providing and using metadata. People can now use the CEDAR tools to create or search templates or metadata for their research.
MJD worked with Stanford providing strategy, user experience research and documentation, user interface design and testing, and an innovative Symfony/Angular headless technology framework.
