Cohort study is one of the fundamental research methods of epidemiology. Through the cohort, it is possible to collect and analyze information of genetic and environmental diversity accurately and continuously, to investigate and identify biomarkers and personalized medicine. Most of the existing cohort studies are self-contained, independent, lack of visibility, with insufficient co-operation and data sharing between each other. The academic value of the data that has been collected and stored in cohort studies have not been fully exploited and utilized.
Our mission is to establish a multi-level three-dimensional cooperation and sharing strategy. We hope that it will encourage and help researchers from public health, clinical and other study interest to be linked more closely by providing data management, data interaction, tools development, repositories and other function.
