Welcome to the ZSOM (Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell) Data Catalog. Our data catalog is a tool to facilitate researchers’ discovery of data by providing a searchable and browsable online collection of records describing datasets generated by ZSOM, Northwell Health, and Feinstein Institutes researchers. Rather than functioning as a data repository to store data, the catalog is a digital way-finder which includes rich metadata (including: description, keywords, format of dataset, instrumentation or software utilized/required, access rights, and links to associated articles and grants.)

The Zucker School of Medicine Data Catalog is designed to:

  • Increase the visibility of research data generated by ZSOM researchers
  • Facilitate collaboration across departments and institutes at ZSOM and Northwell Health
  • Support the process of data re-use
  • Serve as a front interface for the Feinstein Institutes public data repository

If you are interested in submitting a dataset to the ZSOM/Northwell Data Catalog or have a suggestion for additional datasets to add, please contact us at medicine.datacatalog@hofstra.edu. The code used to create the ZSOM/Northwell Data Catalog is open source and available via Github. Documentation and further information are available via OSF. Please contact us if you would like to create a similar catalog.
