The Coalition for National Trauma Research (CNTR) is leading this collaborative effort funded by the Department of Defense (DoD) to advance trauma care. Investigators at the National Trauma Institute, in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health Center for Information Technology and Sapient Government Services, have begun to create the centralized, cloud-based data repository and discovery portal of trauma research data from numerous studies conducted throughout the United States.
The NTRR will enable researchers to share data and collaborate on secondary analyses as well as combine and analyze data across studies. The repository will also be a resource for researchers in developing data sharing plans to meet new funding and publishing requirements.
We expect the NTRR to launch in early 2018.
