Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) is a mature, secure, HIPAA compliant, web-based application for building and managing online surveys and databases. It is the database platform of choice in all CTSA awarded institutions and for other institutions across the globe. Today it is a very important application because it makes life easier for scientists and students. Any research that they intend to describe will be much easier to do using data from this platform. I think that it will interest students because they don't want to spend a lot of time searching for various kinds of information. The same with purchase college research papers since it is much easier to order a paper and not spend your time on it. Regarding the database, there is no charge for current Children’s National and George Washington University (GW) faculty, staff, sponsored students, and sponsored affiliates conducting clinical and translational research.

ResearchMatch / i2b2 Training
We offer free training sessions on the basics of these cohort discovery and recruitment tools:
ResearchMatch, which is an NIH-funded national registry that brings together researchers and 130,000+ volunteers who are interested in learning more about research studies. Used nationally by over 6,000 researchers this novel platform has been helpful in recruiting research participants across many research areas, and has been particularly useful for research involving rare disease, surveys, and healthy volunteers.
i2b2 (Informatics for Integrating Biology and the Bedside) a scalable informatics framework that facilitates self-service exploration and query of the clinical data at Children's National Health System that has been de-identified and aggregated. i2b2 helps with study feasibility and cohort discovery by allowing a researcher to query various inclusion/exclusion criteria, as well as ascertain the potential for recruitment.

Informatics Seminar Series
Every first Tuesday of the month*, the Informatics Core brings an expert over to share his/her expertise on new Informatics developments, applied research Informatics projects, and new areas of potential cross-fertilization with Informatics and other areas in health-related research. You can find us at the Science & Engineering Hall, Conference room 2000*.
