Informatics and Data Analytics Core
Specific Aims and Tasks
To expand and broaden the sharing and utilization of research resources and data across centers in order to accelerate the understanding of biological mechanisms for SUDEP, and to develop intervention and prevention measures to reduce SUDEP mortality. The main goal of this Informatics and Data Analytics U01 Core (IDAC) is to build on the progress already achieved through MEDCIS infrastructure and to expand and broaden the sharing and utilization of research resources among our partners. With access to biospecimen materials and alliances with stakeholder organizations, we continuously boost materials and data collection.
IDAC promotes and facilitates SUDEP research by expanding an integrated clinical and translation data resource for epilepsy; provides coordinated services and support for our members; empowering each investigator with web-based cohort search interface for data mining and hypothesis generation; data analytics and statistical support for in-depth analyses of multi-modal data collected in the shared and expanding CSR Data Repository.
