Gabrielle Miller Kids First Data Resource Center launches research portal

By | News

The Gabriella Miller Kids First Data Resource Center has officially launched its Data Resource Portal, a powerful, open-source resource for research in pediatric disorders. The portal brings together clinical and genomic data related to childhood diseases, including pediatric cancer and birth defects, and enables researchers to collaborate with one another and analyze data in a secure, cloud-based environment.

The CRI is committed to several efforts to use cross-institutional data sharing to study and combat diseases, especially rare diseases such as pediatric cancer. We are proud to be part of the development of this important resource, with our Sr. Programmer Luca Graglia, MS, fully dedicated to the project. Read more about the Kids First DRC and our role here.

Successful REDCapCon draws to a close

By | News, REDCap

The CRI and University of Chicago wrapped up a successful REDCapCon last week. The CRI was honored to host this important three-day event, which brings together REDCap administrators and technical team members from institutions all over the world for education and networking. This year was the tenth annual meeting and one of the largest gatherings to date, with 327 attendees from 201 institutions representing 20 countries across 6 continents.

Many members of the CRI, led by our REDCap Administrator Julissa Acevedo, contributed to planning and executing the event. The keynote speech was given by Dr. Julian Solway of the Institute for Translational Medicine.

REDCapCon 2019 will be held in September 2019 in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
