Focus of the study center is the central data management and evaluation of data originating from the research projects. An important goal is the configuration of a relational data base which can also be used in future research projects. The study center provides support with respect to study design and epidemiological analysis. Its major goal is to provide for quality assurance within the collaborative research project by applying standardised procedures during data acquisition.
