Kids First Data Resource Center

About the Kids First Data Resource Center

Researchers at CHOP, the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research, the University of Chicago, Children’s National Health System, the Oregon Health and Science University and Seven Bridges, are working together to create The Kids First Data Resource Center (DRC), a centralized, cloud-based discovery portal. Funded by the NIH Common Fund, this resource will enable investigators to access large amounts of childhood cancer and structural birth defects genetic data to help accelerate research and promote new discoveries. Understanding the relationship between these disease types on a biological level will ultimately support the development of improved and targeted treatments. To learn more about DRC cloud-based workspaces, visit
