Abstract

A data coordinating center (DCC) is a critical member of any multicenter research undertaking, and that is especially true for the Type 1 Diabetes in Acute Pancreatitis Consortium (T1DAPC). We describe how the T1DAPC DCC supports the consortium via its experience and expertise in project management, administration, financial management, regulatory compliance, scientific coordination, data management, research computing, and biostatistics and in facilitating scientific publications. The DCC's matrix management system has been extremely effective in managing all of its responsibilities. The first 16 months in the life of the T1DAPC have been dedicated to the development of its first protocol, titled Diabetes RElated to Acute pancreatitis and its Mechanisms (DREAM), addressing the institutional review board and regulatory components, developing the T1DAPC data management system, and providing training and certification of clinical center staff. As a result of its efforts, the DCC was a major contributor to the T1DAPC being able to initiate recruitment for the DREAM study in January 2022.
