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.
