About the Kids First Data Resource Center

The Kids First Data Resource Center is a new, collaborative, pediatric research effort with the goal of understanding the genetic causes of and links between childhood cancer and structural birth defects. As part of the Common Fund’s Gabriella Miller Kids First Pediatric Research Program, the Kids First Data Resource Center (DRC) is charged with:

  • Developing data-driven platforms that integrate large amounts of genomic and clinical data from different disease types.
  • Empowering the collaborative discovery, engagement, and necessary partnerships across disease communities that are crucial for progress in our biological understanding of diseases.
  • Enabling rapid translation to personalized treatments for patients diagnosed with childhood cancer or structural birth defects.
  • Accelerating discovery of genetic causes and shared biologic pathways within and across these conditions.
