MGH Coordinating Center


Overview

The MarkVCID Coordinating Center is located at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA.  It is led by Principal Investigator Steven M. Greenberg, Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School. The coordinating center is comprised of an Administrative Core, directed by Kristin Schwab and a Data Core, directed by Karl Helmer.

The role of the Administrative Core is to provide organizational and communication infrastructure to all interactions between the Coordinating Center and project sites.  The Administrative Core organizes consortium-wide decision making via a Steering Committee and designated Subcommittees.  The Administrative Core also oversees annual consortium-wide face-to-face meetings.

The role of the Data Core is to oversee the creation of a database for receiving, curating, storing, and distributing data accumulated by the consortium.   The Data Core works closely with the consortium sites to harmonize the types of data collected in order to allow cross-site analyses and validation studies.
