In order to perform clinical investigations on integrated biomedical data sets and to predict virological and epidemiological outcome, medical experts require an IT-based collaborative environment that provides them a user-friendly space for building and executing their complex studies and workflows on largely available and high-quality data repositories. In this paper, the authors introduce such a novel collaborative working environment a so-called virtual laboratory for clinicians and medical researchers, which allows users to interactively access and browse several biomedical research databases and re-use relevant data sets within own designed experiments. Firstly, technical details on the integration of relevant data resources into the virtual laboratory infrastructure and specifically developed user interfaces are briefly explained. The second part describes research possibilities for medical scientists including potential application fields and benefits as using the virtual laboratory functionalities for a particular exemplary study.
