Presentation of tools made available to CRIR researchers and students


REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a web-based software program created by Vanderbilt University and supported by the REDCap Consortium to facilitate research and data collection.

CRIR offers the use of the service and support to researchers and clinicians associated with the network. Using REDCap significantly improves data quality and security by enforcing an authorization matrix, that allows different members of the study team to have specified levels of access to the data.

For more details, we invite you to consult the latest presentation (in English) from Samir Sangani, Ph.D., our REDCap Project Manager.

For researchers, it permits searching the database to stay up to date on developments in their field, to find collaborators, and identify unmet needs. Increasingly, scientific journals will only accept to publish clinical trials that have been registered before initiation of participant recruitment.

For patients and families, it provides current information about clinical research studies.
