Funded by the NIH Blueprint, NITRC is built and operated by TCG in collaboration with David Kennedy Consulting, Neuromorphometrics, and UCSD's CRBS. Neuroimaging Informatics Tools and Resources Clearinghouse (NITRC) is a user-friendly knowledge environment for the neuroscience community. Continuing to identify software tools and resources (540+), NITRC Resources (NITRC-R) supports researchers dedicated to enhancing, adopting, distributing, and contributing to the evolution of neuroinformatics tools and resources in the domains of MR, PET/SPECT, CT, EEG/MEG, optical imaging, clinical neuroinformatics and imaging genomics. NITRC’s Image Repository (NITRC-IR), built on XNAT, provides a sharing infrastructure for images and related data. Leveraging NeuroDebian, NITRC produced and released the Computational Environment (NITRC-CE) via Amazon’s AWS Marketplace. NITRC-CE is an on-demand, cloud based computational virtual machine pre-installed with popular NITRC neuroimaging tools. NITRC-R averages monthly 18,500 visits and 70,250 pageviews. NITRC-IR offers 7 projects, 3,732 subjects, and 3,747 imaging sessions to promote re-use and integration of these valuable shared data. NITRC-CE provides simplified deployment of cloud-based computation that supports FreeSurfer, FSL, AFNI and many other software resources. NITRC has established itself as a key resource for the advancement of neuroimaging research.
