The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) is inviting applications for the Data Coordinating Center (DCC) for the Cooperative Multicenter Neonatal Research Network, an ongoing multi-center clinical program designed to investigate problems in neonatal medicine, particularly those related to low birth weight, prematurity, and common neonatal medical problems. In support of the activities of the Neonatal Research Network, the data center will (1) collaborate in the development, implementation and monitoring of common Network protocols; (2) provide data management, including preparation of data and safety reports for the Data Monitoring Committee and preparation of data reports for Network subcommittees, centers and public data files; (3) collaborate in the analysis of data and publication of results of the Neonatal Research Network trials and studies; (4) provide the logistical support necessary to running an efficient and productive network.
