Data Sharing & Archiving

The CLDR seeks to build infrastructure for archiving and sharing data related to rehabilitation and disability research. As federal mandates requiring the sharing of information and data from research studies supported by government funding are implemented, the need for effective methods for archiving and sharing data continues to increase.

The CLDR has developed a data archiving and sharing portal that will integrate the center's Data Directory at Cornell University with archived data at the University of Michigan's Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social research (ICPSR). As a member of the CLDR consortium, ICPSR contributes over 40 years of data archiving and sharing experience.

In addition to archiving and sharing, the CLDR will develop webinars, workshops, presentations, and other training, tailored to fit the needs of rehabilitation science researchers as federal mandates go into effect.

The Archive of Data on Disability to Enable Policy and research (ADDEP) provides access to disability and rehabilitation related data. With input from the CLDR, ADDEP will continue to find ways to improve and facilitate collaborative research opportunities for investigators, policymakers, and practitioners by providing access to existing disability and rehabilitation datasets for secondary analyses.

The Center for Large Data Research and Data Sharing in Rehabilitation involves a consortium of investigators from the University of Texas Medical Branch, Cornell University, and the University of Michigan. The CLDR is funded by NIH - National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, through the National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research, the National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke, and the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering.
