ABOUT RESEARCH REPOSITORIES
Generally, a research repository collects, stores and distributes data for use in future
research projects. Storing and gathering numerous data together can help to conduct
future research and avoid re-collecting it over and over again. With this stored information and samples, researchers may understand better how the human body works, develop new tests to find diseases, find new ways to treat diseases, or develop new products, such as drugs. When researchers collect and store data together and use them for different kinds of research in the future, or share them with other scientists, this is called a research repository.
