The Data Office for Clinical & Translational Research, a unit of the University of Michigan Medical School Office of Research, aims to accelerate research by enabling secure access to patient data through investigator-friendly, self-serve tools and custom data extracts. 

How We Serve Your Data Needs



How can you access data? Where can you safely store research data that still allows your team to use it? We offer consultations to help with all of your special data requests.


Data Access

Get clinical, genetic or radiology data by using DataDirect or one of our other self-serve tools. Too complicated? Also request a custom data extract from our experienced programmers. 



Pull the right data for your project with individual or group training on our tools, DataDirect and EMERSE. Trainings are offered throughout the year!
