NCI, CDISC Plan to Launch Electronic Library for Data

November 12, 2010
A new initiative has been launched between the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC) to develop an electronic library that would include multidimensional, machine-readable clinical study metadata. The CDISC Shared Health and Clinical Research Electronic Library is envisioned as a global, accessible, electronic library, which would include precise and standardized data element definitions that can be used within applications and across clinical studies to improve biomedical research.
