Department of Data Science

The Department of Data Science manages the quality control of clinical research data, supports the preparation of research protocols and statistical analyses, operates the Electronic Data Capturing (EDC) system, and trains clinical researchers by implementing these operations.

Business Structure

The Department of Data Science consists of a Data Management Unit, Biostatistics Unit, Monitoring Unit, and IT Unit.

1. Quality management of clinical research

We are involved from the preparation stage of the research protocol and case report forms. For data management, we build a database for each clinical research project, check the data from a scientific and logical point of view, conduct appropriate monitoring, and create the necessary data sets to analyze the results.

2. Support for research protocol implementation

We provide support to establish the clinical research framework, such as the patient selection criteria, endpoints, target sample number, and statistical methods. Additionally, we provide clinical research support and human resource development through clinical research consultations and seminars.

Operation of the EDC system

To provide a database on which high-quality clinical research can be conducted, we have built and operate the REDCap system, which was developed by Vanderbilt University and is the most widely used EDC in academia worldwide.

Office

We provide the smooth implementation of clinical research by organizing operations such as various committees, the management of standard operating procedures, and various administrative procedures for clinical research support.
