On Dec. 12, ASCO released a new video that provides an overview of its recently established Center for Research and Analytics (CENTRA) unit, which is currently open for business and accepting data requests for research.
CENTRA a portal for ASCO information and analyses in support of various Society research activities. The unit supports and initiates research studies conducted both internally and through external collaborations and provides support for research and analysis. Through CENTRA, requests can be made for data from ASCO sources, such as ASCO's quality programs; aggregate data from its annual census of oncology practices; and ASCO Scientific Meeting abstracts and presentations. CENTRA will also facilitate requests for data sets that will become available from ASCO's Targeted Agent and Profiling Utilization Registry (TAPUR) Study, following initial publication.
