The Pediatric Cancer Data Commons (PCDC) houses the world’s largest set of harmonized clinical data for pediatric cancer research. With hundreds of international collaborators forming more than ten disease-specific consortia, we have collected and harmonized data from across more than forty countries and almost all types of pediatric cancer, and continue to grow.
The PCDC Data Portal
The PCDC Data Portal offers a unified platform where researchers can use our cohort explorer and other analysis tools to explore available data and assess study feasibility. Bringing multiple types of clinical data together in one place, the portal offers new opportunities for cross-disease research and interoperability with other data commons. Line-level data for research may be requested through our project application process. Anyone can create an account and explore the PCDC Data Portal. Video tutorials and other documentation are available here.
PCDC Data Dictionaries
Consistent data standards are the foundation for usable, high-quality data. We work with pediatric cancer experts and the National Cancer Institute to develop consensus-based data dictionaries and map all clinical data in the PCDC to standardized terms. Our data dictionaries are available here.
Our disease-specific alliances and consortia are now collecting and harmonizing data for more than a dozen types of pediatric cancer.
