  • Consultation – Implementing a database
    The Center supports two research data management options: Custom research data management applications built on the STRIDE platform and databases created in a standalone self-service database (REDCap).

    During an in-person consultation, center consultants will review options and discuss the tradeoffs of various approaches. We can also summarize research data management best practices and describe the support that we can provide to you toward meeting regulatory requirements such as FDA Part 11.

  • Technical Consultation – For the Research Coordinator/ Data Manager
    This technical consultation is intended primarily for a research lab's data manager. You will be given a review of the online data management tools (REDCap) and application development infrastructure provided by the Center to SoM research projects. The review will give you an understanding of the benefits and restrictions of each tool, as well as the technical competence required to use each one. One-on-one hands on training in getting started with building REDCap databases can also be provided.
Key Points
  • Contact SCCI as early as possible in the design phase of a research project and preferably well in advance of IRB submission.
  • If the scope of the project exceeds four hours of our time, funding may be required to complete the project.
