N3C launches Public Health Answers to Speed Tractable Results (PHASTR)

The National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C) is a secure platform through which the harmonized clinical data provided by contributing members is stored. The N3C has recently launched a new program called Public Health Answers to Speed Tractable Results (PHASTR). This program is designed to quickly address high-impact questions that can be answered with N3C data. These questions will be identified by N3C and NIH leadership, and proposals to address them within the N3C Data Enclave will be open for a short time for each. Successful proposals will be awarded a short-term contract and will be expected to produce quantitative answers within a given time frame.

Open Questions – Applications due February 15, 2023

  • Is Long COVID associated with an increased risk of mortality?
  • Use of the N3C enclave machine learning to create generalizable algorithms that predict patient outcomes at (a) diagnosis, and (b) time of hospitalization.
  • Does the use of the UDCA (ursodeoxycholic acid) at baseline reduce the incidence and/or severity of COVID-19?

If you have questions, want assistance accessing the N3C Data Enclave, or would like help developing a research project that utilizes the Enclave, please complete a DE-CTR BERD request. You will need an ACCEL account to submit a request. If you don’t have one, you will be able to create one when you click the link.
