The Electronic Research Application Portal Rapid Database Generator (eRAP RDG) is a 21 CFR Part 11 compliant web-based interactive tool for data entry and reporting. We can rapidly develop custom databases for longitudinal single and multi-site studies.


Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) is a secure web application for building and managing online surveys and databases. REDCap provides audit trails for tracking data manipulation and user activity and automated export for seamless data downloads.

Data Ark: Data Commons

Data Ark: Data Commons consists of seven high-quality data sets. Data Ark includes both public (restricted and unrestricted) and Sinai-generated data sets, which are managed, processed and combined in a way that optimizes the power, pace and relevance of our science.


The Human-Aware Data Acquisition (HADatAc) combines acquisitions of data and metadata to logically connect to data, enabling data identification and optimizing data queries. Data is composed of scientific measurements supporting computational scientific activities.


The Human Health Exposure Analysis Resource (HHEAR) data center is a continuation of the CHEAR Data Center to include health outcomes at all ages. The data is publicly available to improve our knowledge of the effects of environmental exposures on human health throughout life.
