BackgroundThe valuable clinical data, specimens, and assay results collected during a primary clinical trial or observational study can enable researchers to answer additional, pressing questions with relatively small investments in new measurements. However, management of such follow-on, “ancillary” studies is complex. It requires coordinating across institutions, sites, repositories, and approval boards, as well as distributing, integrating, and analyzing diverse data types. General-purpose… 

Eight practices for data management to enable team data science

This work proposes an operational framework that respects the important difference in how research teams are organized and defines a set of eight best practices for data management, enabling a team-based data science that is unique to the clinical and translational setting.

Quality control, analysis and secure sharing of Luminex® immunoassay data using the open source LabKey Server platform

The HIV Vaccine Trials Network and the Statistical Center for HIV/AIDS Research and Prevention collaborated with LabKey Software to enhance the open source LabKey Server platform to facilitate workflows for multiplexed bead assays, which stands out among Luminex tools for enabling smooth, secure transfer of data, quality control information, and analyses between collaborators.

Konzeption und Entwicklung eines Probandenmanagementsystems am Beispiel der Universitätsmedizin Göttingen

This thesis shows that the demand for an efficient, uniform, and long-term management of participants in medical research projects can be met by the implementation of participant management system.

Alcune considerazioni sociotecnologiche sul Fascicolo Sanitario Elettronico, con riferimento a quello della Regione Emilia-Romagna

This work proposes a new architecture based on the REST paradigm and believes that the adoption of this approach represents a huge improvement with respect to the actual system and allows for characteristics that now are hardly to obtain, if not impossible.



Implementation of a deidentified federated data network for population-based cohort discovery

Objective The Cross-Institutional Clinical Translational Research project explored a federated query tool and looked at how this tool can facilitate clinical trial cohort discovery by managing access

Design aspects of a distributed clinical trials information system

An alternative approach for the design of clinical trials information systems consisting of loosely coupled components standing on a comprehensive model of the global clinical trial process is presented.

Challenges in creating an opt-in biobank with a registrar-based consent process and a commercial EHR

The implementation of an opt-in biobank is described, with consent being obtained at the time of registration and the decision stored in the authors' electronic health record, Epic, which lacks key functionality required by a registrar-based consent process.

Standard requirements for GCP-compliant data management in multinational clinical trials

The standard developed is intended to provide an open and widely used set of requirements for GCP-compliant data management, particularly in academic trial units and will use as the basis for the certification of ECRIN data centres.

Serving the enterprise and beyond with informatics for integrating biology and the bedside (i2b2)

i2b2 software may be used by an enterprise's research community to find sets of interesting patients from electronic patient medical record data, while preserving patient privacy through a query tool interface.

LabKey Server: An open source platform for scientific data integration, analysis and collaboration

The Atlas installation of LabKey Server demonstrates the utility of the LabKey platform for collaborative research and shows how sharing data, analysis tools and infrastructure can speed the efforts of large research consortia by enhancing efficiency and enabling new insights.

Conducting High-Value Secondary Dataset Analysis: An Introductory Guide and Resources

This paper presents a guide to assist investigators interested in conducting secondary data analysis, including advice on the process of successfulsecondary data analysis as well as a brief summary of high-value datasets and online resources for researchers, including the SGIM dataset compendium.

Toward the harmonization of immune monitoring in clinical trials: Quo vadis?

Recent developments clearly suggest that “proper” immunomonitoring will have to encompass the parallel use of several tests, which together assess the frequency, function and homing capacity of induced/stimulated T cells present in the circulation and preferentially also locally within the targeted tissue.

The JDRF Network for the Pancreatic Organ Donor with Diabetes (nPOD): A novel Resource and Study Approach in Type 1 Diabetes Research

The JDRF nPOD is organizing working groups, which apply the concepts of real-time data sharing to accelerate the rate of discovery of human T1D, and the first working group is addressing viruses in diabetes.

A web-based clinical trial management system for a sham-controlled multicenter clinical trial in depression

The development and implementation of a web-based data and project management system for a multicenter clinical trial designed to test the superiority of repeated transcranial magnetic stimulation versus sham for the treatment of patients with major depression is illustrated.
