Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

From Alzheimer’s to kidney disease to malaria and beyond, CDISC standards have helped drive critical breakthroughs in treating diseases. For decades, we have worked hand-in-hand with our community of expert volunteers, member organizations, and non-profit partners around the world, developing standards that help mission-focused foundations achieve their goals. We enable global researchers to efficiently aggregate and analyze data across studies so they can find the hidden connections that make a difference in the lives of the patients.

Standards Development

For over 20 years, we've taken a rigorous approach to developing and advancing data standards for clinical research and beyond. Each standard is informed and shaped by the expertise of those at the forefront of research today, making them not just of the highest quality, but also attuned to the practicalities of their implementation.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

• An urgent need: Clear data is essential to the success of research and the development of new treatments and therapies that people need. But far too often this data remains confined to one organization or one moment in time. When CDISC standards are applied, data is collected, organized, and analyzed in a clear and consistent manner so that all researchers can leverage and share information from individuals and studies around the world, discovering new treatments and impacting people’s health and their lives.
• Maximizing data’s potential: With CDISC standards, it’s possible to amplify the full value of data. Information that's critical to driving forward clinical research for a multitude of therapeutic areas and improving global health becomes accessible across geographies and disciplines, interoperable across studies and treatments, and reusable for research today and tomorrow.
• Focus on breakthroughs: Researchers spend a substantial amount of time deciphering, translating, and mapping unstandardized data. But implementing CDISC standards means that data can be structured effectively and easily analyzed, generating greater efficiencies that leave more time to focus on discoveries that will have invaluable impact on clinical research and global health.

Convening a community
Collaboration and inclusivity have always been bedrocks of CDISC's culture – and they remain central to our process today. It's why we convene a global community of experts from across the research spectrum and facilitate the development of standards that are open and available to all, enabling data sharing around the world.

Diverse perspectives
Our strength derives from the diverse perspectives of our community. Whether coming from a pharmaceutical organization, academic institution, regulatory agency, non-profit, or beyond, our contributors bring a range of experiences and backgrounds that drive more meaningful clinical research.

Collective power
CDISC harnesses the vision and insights of each volunteer, member organization, and partner to define a focused approach for capturing and analyzing clinical research data. When the entire research community works together, we have the power to solve issues too complex for any one individual, team, or organization to address alone.

Quality standards
For over 20 years, we've taken a rigorous approach to developing and advancing data standards for clinical research and beyond. Each standard is informed and shaped by the expertise of those at the forefront of research today, making them not just of the highest quality, but also attuned to the practicalities of their implementation.

Clearly transformative
CDISC standards transform incompatible and disparate data into universal and illuminating information. This allows researchers to understand data across organizations and geographies and uncover biomarkers that would have otherwise remained hidden.

CDISC creates clarity in clinical research by convening a global community to develop and advance data standards of the highest quality. Required by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Japan’s Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA) and adopted by the world’s leading research organizations, CDISC standards enable the accessibility, interoperability, and reusability of data. With the help of CDISC standards, the entire research community can maximize the value of data for more efficient and meaningful research that has invaluable impact on global health. CDISC is a 501(c)(3) global nonprofit charitable organization and is headquartered in Austin, Texas, with hundreds of employees, volunteers, and member organizations around the world.
