Seminar Series 2018-19 schedule now available

By | News

The CRI Seminar Series 2018-19 season kicks off this Friday with a talk from Sam Volchenboum, “Including Informatics in Grant Applications.” The full schedule for this academic year includes twelve sessions, in topics ranging from parallel computing to natural language processing to REDCap. In October, we will welcome guest speakers from the Human Imaging Research Office; the other sessions will be presented by experts in each field from the CRI.

Creating opportunities for informatics education is an important part of our mission. CRI Seminar Series talks are free and open to all members of the University of Chicago community and partner institutions. Check out the full schedule here.

CRI and UChicago prepare to host REDCapCon 2018

By | News

REDCapCon, the annual education and networking conference for REDCap administrators, will be held this year from August 19-22 at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago. The CRI is honored to be hosting this year’s event, with our REDCap Administrator Julissa Acevedo playing an important role in bringing the conference to UChicago. 

Now in its tenth year, the conference is designed to help REDCap administrators and technical team members support the effective use of REDCap at their home institutions. The three days of programming include presentations, breakout sessions, and networking. In addition to educational opportunities, the conference works to foster collaborative relationships between member institutions, ultimately contributing to the ongoing improvement of the REDCap software.

Learn more how you can use REDCap with the CRI here.

CRI and Elligo team up on FDA data harmonization project

By | News

The CRI is pleased to announce a new collaborative project with Elligo Health Research in which both teams will assist the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with developing a standard common data model to guide evidence generation in biomedical research studiesand bridge clinical research and clinical care. As part of a grant awarded by the Patient Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) Trust Fund, the FDA is currently involved in an effort to harmonize multiple common data models and open standards. By mapping data from disparate sources to one consensus-based model, the project will facilitate interoperability between data networks and make new research possible.

The CRI’s rich Clinical Research Data Warehouse and experience in the development and maintenance of data models make us a natural partner for Elligo and the FDA in developing and implementing interoperability standards. In addition to providing the FDA with valuable information about the safety of new cancer treatments, this project will help assess the value of the standard common data model for real world evidence research, as well as the tools and methods used to achieve the data harmonization. Learn more about what we’ll be working on here.
