COVID-19 Clinical Data Analysis on a National Scale: The National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C)

This is a past event.

What: A workshop hosted by the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) and the UAB Informatics Institute to introduce the N3C platform to our research communities.

Why: N3C offers access to health record data from a cohort of COVID-19 patients drawn from across the nation, providing statistical power that no single institution can achieve on its own.  Investigators will be able to use limited data sets of COVID-19 patients and controls for row-level data access and analysis in a secure analytical environment where tools and algorithms can be rapidly evaluated and clinicians and researchers can ask granular and complex clinical questions.

Who: Research teams interested in conducting outcomes research and investigation of clinical data

  • Investigators with clinical questions about COVID-19 infection
  • Faculty and staff with analytic expertise (informaticists, data scientists, biostatisticians, machine learning experts)
  • Trainees interested in learning how to leverage large data sets for clinical and translational research

Workshop Objectives:

  • Describe the N3C platform
  • Provide an overview of the types of data available to answer questions about COVID-19 disease course and outcomes
  • Foster transdisciplinary teams of health researchers and analytic experts 
  • Learn how to get involved and be ready to utilize this resource to serve your research goals
