N3C Data Enclave

The N3C Data Enclave is a secure platform through which harmonized clinical data provided by our contributing members are stored. The Enclave includes demographic and clinical characteristics of patients who have been tested for or diagnosed with COVID-19, and further information about the strategies and outcomes of treatments for those suspected or confirmed to have the virus.

Mission: To highlight CTR involvement with the National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C), to entice and promote junior investigators to learn to utilize the N3C with a mentor, and provide resources for using the N3C data enclave.
