Abstract: Understanding potential genetic factors in disease or de- velopment of personalised e-Health solutions require scientists to access a multitude of data and compute resources across the Internet from func- tional genomics resources through to epidemiological studies. The Grid paradigm provides a compelling model whereby seamless access to these resources can be achieved. However, the acceptance of Grid technologies in this domain by researchers and resource owners must satisfy particular constraints from this community - two of the most critical of these con- straints being advanced security and usability. In this paper we show how the Internet2 Shibboleth technology combined with advanced authorisa- tion infrastructures can help address these constraints. We demonstrate the viability of this approach through a selection of case studies across the complete life science spectrum.

Keywords: Grids, Security, Shibboleth, Clinical Trials, Epidemiological Studies, Neurological Research
