Funded Research

TMCs - Tissue Mapping Centers

TMCs will collect and analyze a range of normal tissues from donors that consist of males and females, and a variety of ages as well as ethnicities. Tissue samples collected will consist of discrete, complex organs, distributed organ systems and systems comprising dynamic or motile cell types with distinct microenvironments. Tissues to be collected and analyzed by the TMCs include bladder, kidney/ureter, colon, lung, lymph nodes, spleen, thymus, pancreas, eye, uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, tooth, cartilage, heart, bone and vasculature.

Funded TMCs Include:

  • California Institute of Technology
  • Stanford University
  • University of California, San Diego
  • University of Florida
  • Vanderbilt University

TTDs - Transformative Technology Development

TTDs will collect and analyze tissue along with the TMCs, including tissue from the heart, aorta, skin, kidney, endothelial cells, liver, pancreas, uterus, and breast. TTDs will also provide proof-of-principle with initial validation of transformative new tools, techniques and methods for mapping the human body at high resolution.

Funded TTDs include:

  • California Institute of Technology
  • Stanford University
  • Purdue University
  • Harvard University

HIVE- HuBMAP Integration, Visualization and Engagement

This team is jointly responsible for 1) managing the data generated by the Consortium, 2) coordinating internal and external Consortium activities, 3) developing novel tools for visualizing, searching and modelling data and 4) building an atlas of tissue maps.

Funded HIVE Components Include:

  • Carnegie Mellon University/Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center & University of Pittsburgh
  • Harvard Medical School
  • Carnegie Mellon University
  • Indiana University
  • New York Genome Center

RTIs - Rapid Technology Implementation

The RTIs will focus on enhancing, large-scale validation, and integration of emerging new technologies into the HuBMAP Consortium. The goal is to improve the quality and throughput of atlas generation at key steps of the production pipeline including sample collection, tissue mapping, and data integration and analysis.

Funded RTIs include:

  • General Electric Global Research Center
  • Stanford University
  • Northwestern University
  • Broad Institute, Inc
