Data Coordinating Center

The Emmes Corporation supports multiple National Institutes of Health and industry funded biomedical and clinical research studies. Emmes’ Data Coordinating Center (DCC) will be responsible for coordinating and subcontracting scientific services needed for the MDS study, such as a centralized multi-reader histopathology review, and protocol-defined research studies to enrich the study data set. The DCC will work with the NCI’s ECOG-ACRIN Cancer Research Group (EA) to aggregate, store, and analyze data collected at clinical sites and research laboratories. The DCC will also be responsible for transferring data files and summary reports to investigators, the NHLBI Observational Study Monitoring Board (OSMB), and the NHLBI throughout the study.
