The DCC, based in the University of Washington’s School of Public Health (the Genetic Analysis Center in the Department of Biostatistics), partners with NHGRI and oversees these aspects of the Consortium’s activities:
- Management of data release (data models, harmonization and Quality Control);
- Management of program outreach (engage clinicians, families and researchers);
- Coordination of logistics for the GREGoR Consortium (including committee, working group and Consortium meetings; Consortium communications; and engagement with policies and standards to support Consortium goals and work); and
- Management of the Opportunity Fund (small awards to support the work of researchers from outside the Consortium to follow up on promising findings in Mendelian studies - beginning in year 2 of the project).
