Meta Study Webinar

  • A webinar was held on February 7th, 2023 to provide an overview of the policy (NOT-NS-23-046) which requires all NINDS-funded TBI human subjects research data to submit to the Federal Interagency Traumatic Brain Injury Research (FITBIR) Informatics System. In addition, this webinar addressed how the TBI research community can utilize FITBIR’s Meta Study Module to fulfill Data Management and Sharing requirements.
  • NIH panelists for this webinar included:
    • Nsini Umoh, PhD, NINDS Program Director for Traumatic Brain Injury research and co-Director of FITBIR
    • Matthew McAuliffe, PhD, Acting Chief, Office of Scientific Computing Services (OSCS) and Co-Director of FITBIR
    • Alison Garcia, MS, Project Manager, Center for Information Technology (CIT)
    • Kevin Armengol, MS, FITBIR Operations
  • NINDS-funded TBI research data involving human subjects research that is not covered by the NOT-NS-17-029 will now be required to house data in the Meta Study Module within FITBIR. This webinar covered policy updates (NOT-NS-23-046), steps to submit data to the Meta Study module, and included a Q&A session at the end.
