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.
