Overview of the Data Acquisition Module

The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) will oversee and coordinate data acquisition activities over 3 sites: UAB, University of California San Diego (UCSD) and University of Washington (UW).

Data is responsible for:

  • Determining all domains and variables for the dataset.
  • Developing the protocol.
  • Drafting the Manual of Procedures (MOP).
  • Implementing the protocol for data collection, starting with the hiring, training, and certification of Clinical Research Coordinators (CRCs), followed by the enrollment of participants and participant visits.
  • Overseeing the biorepository storage of biospecimens at UAB for future ancillary studies.
