Data Partnership & Governance Workstream

Mission

Develop partnerships with organizations and their Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) — with single IRB review offered at Johns Hopkins University — and execute a common data use agreement (DUA) for contributing to and accessing the N3C dataset. Establish a Data Access Committee (DAC) for evaluating data access requests.
