Use free-text search and tags to find studies, discover datasets, and export selected data files to an analysis workspace.


Gen3 workspaces are secure cloud environments where users can analyze data from one or more data resources.

Example Analysis

Learn how to use Jupyter Notebooks to explore and visualize data available on the HEAL platform by running a static tutorial notebook, or use one of these examples as a launching point for your own custom analysis.


Create API keys for programmatic data access, and review your authorization privileges to datasets and services.

HEAL Data Platform

The HEAL Data Platform is a single web interface which allows visitors to discover, access and analyze data generated by HEAL funded, as well as HEAL relevant, studies within a distributed ecosystem. Making HEAL data easily findable enables secondary, cross-study analyses, promotes dissemination of the HEAL Initiative's research and accelerates new discoveries.

HEAL Semantic Search
The NIH HEAL Initiative also provides HEAL Semantic Search, a complementary tool to use with the HEAL Data Platform. HEAL Semantic Search allows users to explore connections between biomedical concepts, identify variables related to a concept and discover datasets containing these variables. Uncovering novel relationships between concepts and variables may help researchers pose relevant research questions and identify potential collaborations.
