Data Coordination

The Data Coordinating Center, within the Research Informatics Center (RIC), specializes in the planning, development, management, and secure implementation of data systems for biomedical research. We apply advanced statistical and bioinformatics tools to achieve project goals in a technologically modern environment. We work with investigators to enable subject data curation.

Stanford Cancer Institute Research Database 

In collaboration with the Stanford Cancer Institute, the DCC develops and supports the Stanford Cancer Institute Research Database (SCIRDB). It has a rich set of data and integrates many resources including EPICSTARR, specialized databases in surgical pathology and radiation oncology, and the Stanford Cancer Registry. 

Established Programs

Bone Marrow Transplant

The DCC develops and supports the Stanford Bone Marrow Transplant database that allows for reporting outcomes for National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) and insurance companies (RFI) as well as Stanford clinical research needs. 

Lymphoma Program

The Levy Lab, under the direction of Dr. Ronald Levy, has been studying the treatment of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas, improving therapy of this cancer, understanding their pathogenesis and studying normal lymphocyte biology. Research in monoclonal antibody therapies and tumor vaccines is ongoing.  

Disease-specific Databases

The DCC develops and supports disease-specific databases for neuroendocrine tumors, solid tumors, bladder-kidney-testicular cancers, and prostate cancer. 

Cancer Clinical Trial Recruitment

The DCC is able to query the Stanford Cancer Institute Research Database to identify candidates for cancer clinical trials. We work with the investigator to develop selective eligibility criteria that produce high yield candidates.
