The MADCaP Data Access Approvals Committee
The DAAC is divided into two groups: MADCaP Africa and MADCaP US and each is comprised of PIs who contribute and or facilitate the contribution of, data and/or biospecimens to the network. There is one member from each collaborating institution, and members were chosen to represent a range of expertise and representation from each contributing Institution.
The DAAC is responsible for reviewing applications received from individuals interested in using African/US tissue and data for undertaking analyses, paper, grant, or project proposals. This information is to be submitted onto the project and paper concept proposal form, which is to be reviewed by all MADCaP PIs and will be available on the MADCaP website (www.madcapnetwork.org). All proposals will then be collated and distributed to the DAAC by DFCI staff to review, identify overlaps, and suggest potential merges.
Primary data for approved concepts will be sent to the relevant investigators only once DTAs have been signed. There is no such requirement for summary data.**
