Information Resources & Technology (IRT)

Project Gallery

IRT works with groups school-wide to design and build custom technology solutions serving the needs of researchers, clinicians, patients, students, educators and the community. The following is a sampling of the applications we have developed. Additional projects can be found in our systems development portfolio.

Stanford Translational Research Integrated Database Environment


The Stanford Translational Research Integrated Database Environment (STRIDE) is a HIPAA-compliant biomedical data repository based on emerging informatics standards. The goals of the project are to provide a standards-based research data management service to the Stanford University Medical Center community and to create a clinical data warehouse that supports center's clinical and translational research mission.

Community Academic Profiles Directory


The CAP directory provides an easy-to-use interface through which people-both inside and outside of the Stanford community-can learn about the far-ranging and innovative research taking place across the School of Medicine. This up-to-date collection of profiles offers a comprehensive overview of the research interests of faculty and principal investigators, their publications, curricula vitae and more.

LaneConnex Search

Biomedical Research Metasearch

IRT’s LaneConnex Search provides a metasearch that can simultaneously query multiple sources of content, returning results from commercially licensed, Stanford created and open source information. The project seeks to integrate access to a range of domain-specific databases, textbooks, journal articles and guidelines through one comprehensive and easy-to-use interface. Searchable specialty portals have been developed to accommodate the different needs of departments, clinicians and researchers.

Clinical Trial Directory

Clinical Trials

The Clinical Trial Directory project meets a longstanding need among patients, referring physicians and internal audiences for a comprehensive online listing of all open clinical trials at the School of Medicine. Using this application, principal investigators and study coordinators can post descriptions of their clinical trials to a user-friendly web portal for easy public browsing.



FAST|FAC is an application developed to aid departments and the school of medicine in the Faculty Appointment & Promotion process. Its goal was to improve the on-time performance of the process and to provide visibility and metrics for those involved.
