Maelstrom Research Programme
(Director: I. Fortier)
Located at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Center (RI-MUHC), Maelstrom Research is an independent research programme created under the umbrella of the Public Population Project in Genomics and Society (P3G). Maelstrom Research's ultimate goal is to optimize the use of study data and facilitate collaboration amongst networks or consortia of studies. To accomplish this, it will provide the research community with a suite of methods, open-source software, and expert advice needed to support valid data comparison and harmonization across studies. This project brings together tools and expertise developed through the DataSHaPER and OBiBa projects and builds on collaborations established with the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging, the Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow, and BioSHaRE projects.
