The HCSRN is committed to sharing lessons learned in the conduct of embedded multisite research.   

The HCSRN Scientific Data Resources Forum is our venue for showcasing a range of work happening in informatics, analytics, data development, and scientific collaboration. We feature both HCSRN and non-HCSRN presenters and archive the presentations.  Links to past sessions are found below (password hcsrnSDRF1).

Registries in Transition: How an Evolving Technical and Regulatory Landscape is Shaping What's Possible with Patient Data Aggregation

Leon was Founder and CEO of Prometheus Research, where he led a team that specialized in using information technology to help research-focused organizations make better use of their data. His primary focus was to empower knowledge-intensive teams to securely harness complex, sensitive data in regulated environments. Prometheus designed adaptable informatics systems that promoted dynamic scientific collaborations by delivering effective data management services with those systems. Over the last two decades, Leon has served in a leadership role on over 50 engagements that cumulatively serve a user community extending to hundreds of leading institutions across North America and support over $200M in funded research. 


Leon Rozenblit, JD, PhD 

As a research scientist at Yale, Leon earned his Ph.D. while teaching graduate and undergraduate statistics. His career in informatics has ranged from supporting intra-lab collaborations to national and international programs with multimillion-dollar budgets. He is a well-regarded public speaker with a strong record of presenting at conferences and has published in cognitive psychology, informatics, and cryptographic methods.
