WHAT IS THE GLOBAL PREGNANCY COLLABORATION (COLAB)?
CoLab is a consortium of international investigative groups with data and biological samples from women prior to, during and in some cases, long after an adverse pregnancy outcome. These data and samples are in a membership-wide shared database and available to CoLab members and to investigators sponsored by CoLab members. We currently have members from over 35 centers with more than 300,000 pregnancies and we are growing!
We believe the time has come in obstetrical research to pool research and intellectual resources to begin to address and answer questions that could not otherwise be answered by a single investigative group.
HOW TO BECOME A COLAB MEMBER?
Applicants with research interests relevant to CoLab (complications of pregnancy) and excellent data and/or biological samples can obtain membership applications from CoLab Project Manager, Lee Rager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT ARE MEMBER RESPONSIBILITIES?
CoLab has a unique organizational structure; there are no dues or fees for membership and other than participation in monthly 30 minute web-based conferences, there are no obligations associated with membership other than to participate in good faith! Members are free to make individual decisions regarding involvement in projects on a proposal-by-proposal basis.
