The Coalition for National Trauma Research (CNTR) leads 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, are responsible for creating the centralized, cloud-based data repository and discovery portal of trauma research data from numerous studies conducted throughout the United States.
The NTRR enables researchers to share data and collaborate on secondary analyses as well as combine and analyze data across studies. The repository is also a resource for researchers as they develop data sharing plans to meet new funding and publishing requirements.
We expect the NTRR to launch in early 2018.
