Transforming Epidemiology Through Advanced Methods (TEAM)
Modernizing the California Teachers Study Using a Tablet-Based Tracking System: An All-in-One Coordinating Center

James Lacey Jr., Ph.D.

Associate Professor, Department of Population Sciences, City of Hope

The California Teachers Study (CTS) began in 1995, when 133,479 female public school professionals completed a risk-factor questionnaire, and extensive follow-up data, outcome information, and biospecimens continued to be collected. As part of the current (2012-2016) CTS biobanking project, investigators tried a new approach, and the results have been even better than anticipated. Dr. Lacey and his team built an innovative, cloud-based, mobile-enabled data management system that gives CTS investigators real-time, on-demand access to all of the information they need to collect high-quality, well-annotated, best-practices biospecimens from thousands of women all over California. This webinar will describe the innovative approaches used and discuss why they have the potential to transform epidemiologic study infrastructure.
