  • MURDOCK Study partners with BioStorage

    Duke University has partnered with BioStorage Technologies, Inc. in Indianapolis for storage and management of the biological samples provided by Kannapolis and Cabarrus County residents for the landmark MURDOCK Study.

    Study leaders needed to develop an alternative storage option due to the closure of the LabCorp biorepository in Kannapolis this summer, a result of its corporate merger with Covance.

    With no other local biorepository option, MURDOCK Study leadership conducted an extensive search process and chose BioStorage Technologies, Inc. for storage and management of the samples. The legacy of our more than 12,200 participants who have made this incredibly important research project possible has been preserved.

  • Health History Accuracy Project

    Goal: Evaluate electronic health record data and self-reported health data to determine which is the most accurate data source for diagnoses, procedures, hospitalizations, medications, race and ethnicity. Additionally, the study will help to determine if use of both data sources can outperform either data source alone.

    Meredith Nahm Zozus, PhD

    Principal Investigator: Meredith Nahm Zozus, assistant professor of  Biostatistics and Bioinformatics at Duke University

    Eligibility and Recruitment: The Duke-Kannapolis team will contact eligible MURDOCK Study participants for this study in mid-2016.

    Study Design: The study will compare self-reported data and electronic health record data to identify discrepancies. After identifying discrepancies, the researchers will interview patients to identify the cause of the discrepancy and determine which data source is accurate. Afterwards, the study will examine the proportion of discrepancies that patients report to health systems and the likelihood that a reported discrepancy results in an actual change in the health record. Ultimately, the researchers want to know whether the changes affect guideline-based clinical decision-making.
