CEDAR Metadata Workbench and Its Relationship with caDSR CDEs and CRFs

August 22, 2022 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. ET

Attend this webinar to discover how NCI CBIIT contracted with Stanford University to enhance the Center for Expanded Data Annotation and Retrieval (CEDAR) Workbench. Now, this metadata management system can both allow researchers to reuse NCI Common Data Elements (CDEs) for creating metadata templates and allow NCI Standard Case Report Forms (CRFs) to be reused as CEDAR templates. Webinar speakers will highlight both of these processes as well as:

  • introduce the CEDAR/caDSR project.
  • give an overview of the CEDAR Workbench.
  • illustrate caDSR content in CEDAR.
  • demonstrate data collection using CEDAR templates.

CEDAR not only works to ensure Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR) data sharing but also enhances scientific reproducibility. It’s a process that enables:

  • community-based organizations to collaborate and create metadata templates.
  • investigators or curators to use the templates to define the metadata for individual experiments.
  • scientists to search the metadata to access and analyze the corresponding online data sets.

Developing prevention and treatment in biomedicine requires aggregation and analysis of data from multiple healthcare sources. To facilitate these approaches, there is focus on standardizing data-capture and reporting requirements.

Mr. Martin O’Connor

Mr. O'Connor is the technical lead for CEDAR in the Stanford Center for Biomedical Informatics Research (BMIR). His research interests focus on the development of technologies to support metadata specification using semantic technologies. He is especially excited to be connecting CEDAR to the larger community of CDE users.

Denise Warzel, M.Sc.

Ms. Warzel is the program manager for the caDSR infrastructure at CBIIT. She has supported infrastructure for creating and distributing NCI data standards since 1999 and is especially interested in promoting broader access and use of NCI caDSR standards.
