One of Pedimacs deliverables to the MCSD community is to provide statistical analyses and/or registry data to established recipients including the Federal partners (FDA, CMS and NHLBI), and collaborating investigators. Pedimacs makes data and analytical resources available for research purposes through a process overseen by the Data Access, Analysis, and Publications Committee (DAAP). This committee, chaired by Dr. David Rosenthal, reviews all research proposals and is now meeting semi-annually.

There are two analysis options for a researcher interested in requesting registry-wide data:

Research Proposal Review Cycle:
  • Spring Research Proposal Submission Deadline: May 31st (Example: ISHLT abstracts)
  • Winter Research Proposal Submission Deadline: December 31st (Example: AHA abstracts)

Please be sure to review our Existing Research to avoid the submission of redundant requests.
