Pilot Projects

The CLDR's pilot studies program is designed to offer practical experience in managing, analyzing, and interpreting findings using large data analytics and secondary data analysis. The Center provides funding in three areas: Category 1 includes research examining questions using a large administrative or healthcare research dataset and Category 2 involves the archiving of existing data from a completed study. Category 3 is a new mechanism which will provide travel awards for early career researchers, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students to present their research (using a specific dataset in the ADDEP repository) at the 2017 ACRM annual conference.


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.
