Renal DataSHaPER

Within the GENECURE project, a Renal Data Schema and Harmonization Platform for Epidemiological Research (DataSHaPER) has been developed, that defines the core set of variables to be collected in studies on chronic kidney disease patients in order to enlarge harmonization between future studies.
The Renal DataSHaPER is available at the DataSchema Platform at

This work is done in close collaboration with the Public Population Project in Genomics (P3G), a similar initiative for population-based biobanks. With the end of the GENECURE project in 2010, the Renal DataSHaPER is an ongoing initiative of ReGeNet.
