Center for Data to Health

Advances in informatics, coupled with a shift toward open science, are fundamentally transforming how we approach translational research and clinical care. The National Center for Data to Health (CD2H) accelerates advances in informatics by promoting collaboration across Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program hubs, including the University of Rochester.

CD2H strives to build an infrastructure to unite the data ecosystem, enable innovative new analytics, and promote effective collaboration across the researcher-clinician spectrum.

Engage with CD2H

University of Rochester researchers can register to get involved with a range of informatics projects, connect with the informatics community, and access prototypes of new data systems and tools through the CD2H. Join the CD2H’s Slack and GitHub workspaces and follow a simple process to integrate into their environment.

National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C)

There is no shortage of clinical data across the U.S., but these data differ in structure and are not easy for scientists to access or analyze collaboratively. The National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C) is an open science community that unites and harmonizes COVID patient data, enabling collaborative analytics.

University of Rochester researchers can access secure COVID patient data through the N3C Data Enclave and can join or start N3C Domain Teams, which enable researchers with shared interests to analyze data collaboratively within the N3C Data Enclave. Domain teams range in research focus from COVID vaccination to the impact of COVID on older adults, and from defining long COVID to studying outcomes of cancer patients who contract COVID – and many more.

Join CD2H Projects

University of Rochester researchers can join these CD2H projects to drive requirements, test new tools and programs via CD2H Labs, and help build a rich translational infrastructure. CD2H projects focus in four areas:

  1. Discovering and sharing resources across the CTSA Program and beyond,
  2. Supporting the interoperability and sharing of data,
  3. Promoting informatics maturity and best practices across the CTSA Program, and
  4. Creating a cloud infrastructure to securely share and collaborate on software, tools and data.
