N3C Domain Teams enable researchers with shared interests analyze data within the N3C Data Enclave and collaborate more efficiently in a team science environment. These teams provide an opportunity to collect pilot data for grant submissions, train algorithms on larger datasets, and learn how to use tools for large scale COVID-19 data. Domain Teams are enabled by Slack channels for discussion, meetings, and document management and are supported by N3C workstreams. N3C encourages researchers of all levels to join a Domain Team that represents their interests, or to suggest new clinical areas to explore. A Domain Team can submit one or more research projects, but collaboration is encouraged for similar concepts.
Types of Domain Teams
Multi-discipline Clinical Domain Teams consisting of clinical and subject matter experts, statisticians, informaticists, and machine learning specialists focus on clinical questions surrounding COVID-19's impact on health conditions, whereas Cross-Cutting Domain Teams have a varied focus that applies to multiple domains.
