Biomedical Research Integrated Domain Group (BRIDG) Work Group


The Biomedical Research Integrated Domain Group (BRIDG) Model is a collaborative effort engaging stakeholders from the Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC), the HL7 BRIDG Work Group, the US National Cancer Institute (NCI), and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The goal of the BRIDG Model is to produce a shared view of the dynamic and static semantics for the domain of basic, pre-clinical, clinical, and translational research and its associated regulatory artifacts. This domain of interest is further defined as:

The data, organization, resources, rules, and processes involved in the formal assessment of the utility, impact, or other pharmacological, physiological, or psychological effects of a drug, procedure, process, subject characteristic, biologic, cosmetic, food or device on a human, animal, or other subject or substance plus all associated regulatory artifacts required for or derived from this effort, including data specifically associated with post-marketing adverse event reporting.
  • Mission: Give complete emphasis and support to the future development and global implementation of this domain analysis model into International Data Model of HL7, CDISC and ISO for the support of healthcare and clinical research.
  • Co-Chairs:

**Edward Helton PhD, National Cancer Institute, Term ends Jan 2016

    • Mary Ann Slack, Food and Drug Administration, Term ends Jan 2016

  3. Select type of mail
You receive copies of messages posted to the list as they are delivered and distributed (most common method)
Each night, around 12:00 am, you will receive a single email message containing all the messages contributed to the list that day. At the top of the message will be a numbered list of the subjects in that digest, followed by the complete messages themselves. Digest recipients will not receive messages sent to segments.
Digest with Attachments 
The same as a digest, but in MIME format so that the individual messages' formatting is preserved. Some email clients such as Outlook will show the digest as a series of attachments. Digest recipients will not receive messages sent to segments.

Open Discussion Questions from BRIDG 4.0 May 2015 Ballot

The following questions/comments were received for the clinical genomics/molecular biology subdomain of the BRIDG model. Since genomics expertise does not exist in the BRIDG WG, we are actively seeking comments and help from the members of clinical genomics working group in helping resolve the ballot comments and clarify the semantics in the BRIDG model. Please edit the discussion question page directly or email the BRIDG SCC at and someone will upload the comments for you.
