Welcome to the CRI!

Since 2011, we have offered an ever-growing selection of state-of-the-art technologies and services for working with research data. Our resources are secure, standards-compliant, and open to all members of the BSD and their collaborators.

Not sure where to start? Browse our areas of expertise below to see what resources we can put to work for you. Still can’t find what you need? Get in touch to talk about your project.

Acquiring Clinical Data

Our Clinical Research Data Warehouse contains clinical data dating back to 2006. Learn more about the CRDW and, after your office hours appointment, submit a data request.

The data in the CRDW can be queried for the purpose of cohort discovery. Access i2b2 here with your BSD or UCHAD username and password.

Managing Data

The CRI operates and maintains REDCap, a web-based application supporting data collection strategies for research studies with tools for building and managing online surveys and databases. We also offer educational resources for making the most of this tool. Request access to REDCap here.

If you are looking for information on Velos eResearch, a clinical trials management system that integrates study administration and data management, visit the Office of Clinical Research.
