First global open-source database for spinal cord injury research

Experts from the University of Alberta and the University of California, San Francisco, are teaming up to launch the world’s first open-source database for international spinal cord injury research. 

The Open Data Commons for preclinical Spinal Cord Injury research (ODC-SCI) will improve spinal cord injury research and treatment worldwide by reducing data bias and equipping scientists by making data more accessible, enhancing research and translational efforts, the creators say.

Research data shared in publications and used by scientists, health-care professionals and even patients, represent only a fraction of research data actually produced.

The ODC-SCI is a database of all SCI research data, not just published results.
