The Data Management and Statistics Core provides database and statistical support for research conducted by the Massachusetts ADRC. It also provides database development and maintenance, data quality control and monitoring, study design and planning, and data analyses and interpretation for Center personnel.
The development of new study designs to support early disease trials is a major research focus. Another focus of the Core is the training of students, biostatisticians and clinical investigators with expertise in statistical methods to conduct Alzheimer's disease research, and the development of new software to support collaborative research among researchers.
Last but not least, the Core also supports the submission of longitudinal clinical and neuropathological data to the National Alzheimer's Coordinating Center  (NACC) data repository and the maintenance of the Center's website.
