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, inform clinical trial design, learn how to use tools for large scale COVID-19 data, and validate results. 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 focus on clinical questions surrounding COVID-19's impact on health conditions and consist of clinical and subject matter experts, statisticians, informaticists, and machine learning specialists. Cross-Cutting Domain Teams have a varied focus that applies to multiple domains.
