Big Data and Bioinformatics

The ITM is proud to support the University of Chicago Center for Research Informatics (CRI) led by our ITM’s Informatics Core Leader, Samuel Volchenboum, MD, PhD. CRI services are eligible for ITM Core Subsidy Award support.

The Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) resource offers researchers a one-stop-shop and automated tools to collect data, create standardized surveys, and export data to statistical software packages. The ITM partners with the CRI to give you free access to REDCap, as well as free expert consulting and training to help you make the most of this web-based platform that’s already used by more than 693,000 researchers worldwide.

Clinical Research Data Warehouse
The Clinical Research Data Warehouse (CRDW) holds University of Chicago medical data from 2006 to the present, and it’s one of the deepest and most research-ready data repositories of its kind. The CRDW team brings together data from a variety of sources – including Epic electronic medical records, Centricity billing, patient registries, and REDCap – to curate powerful datasets for research.
