Collaborative DataSpace: User Guide

Documentation: Version 19.3
The CAVD DataSpace (CDS) data portal is a custom project developed by LabKey and the Statistical Center for HIV/ AIDS Research and Prevention (SCHARP) at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Fred Hutch). The goal is to help researchers gain new insights from completed studies, making integrated data from all studies available within a web-based interface for browsing.

Beginning in July 2018, the CAVD DataSpace is available to the public.
