Platform Centers & Hubs are a special type of project PHRT funds which aim to establish (digital) infrastructures and services that can be used by other researchers.
Within the PHRT program, SMOC is an engine for multi-omics data generation, analysis and interpretation. It constitutes of three entities: The Genomics platform, the Proteomics platform and the Metabolomics platform. For secure data processing and sharing, SMOC is integrated into the SPHN/BioMEdIT secure computational infrastructure.

The Personalized Medicine Imaging Hub is currently being launched. This hub is a cross-institution entity including research groups from Empa, EPFL, ETHZ and PSI. It aims at bringing together ETH biomedical imaging researchers with clinical partners to support new research to improve the use of imaging technologies/processing in precision medicine. The subjects covered by the hub range from image acquisition technology, multimodal data integration and analysis to clinical imaging software.
The Personalized Health Data Analysis Hub is a joint-venture between the two SFAs PHRT and SDSC, currently being launched, to support data science in the field of omics data analyses. It supports in particular the integration and analysis of data produced by SMOC and will enhance the understanding of multimodal data analysis.
