Update: National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C) Data Ready for Use

Since last fall Loyola has been a participant in the National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C). The N3C is a national resource that enables large cohort Covid-19 clinical research. A Data Use Agreement (DUA) has recently been completed which allows Loyola researchers to request access to N3C data. More information on N3C and how to request data can be found on the NCATS-N3C page.

External REDCap Site Goes Live

The external Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) site is now available for research use.  This allows researchers and participants to access REDCap functions such as data entry, surveys, and electronic consenting from off-campus networks.  This also facilitates multicenter studies by allowing Loyola to be the host data site.  More information can be found on the REDCap page.  To request access to the external REDCap site, please submit the External REDCap Access Request form.
