中美健康老龄化研究网络(China-U.S. Research for Healthy Aging Network)启动会

Kickoff

中美健康老龄化研究网络(China-U.S. Research for Healthy Aging Network,缩写为 CURHAN):构建纵向队列全国研究以调查中国人对各种慢性疾病的易感性,增强防治这些疾病的意识,建立符合中国国情的新的疾病干预和治疗原则。尽管已有不少针对中国的慢性疾病的流病研究,但是CURHAN将采用FHS的方法论来创建一个比以往研究更全面和更准确的知识库来武装从一线工作者到高层决策者的各层次中国卫生工作者。该研究使用开源设计,以求与中国研究者广泛分享研究的协议,包括由中国研究者设计和教学的训练模块,监控数据收集过程以确保其符合高质量标准。为了催化更多的科学发现,该项目将所有数据存放于集中式数据库,通过云服务让尽量多的研究者来访问。

来自中国和美国多个机构的研究者及商务工作者正为推动这个项目而努力,其中包括北京协和医学院、华大基因、合肥工业大学、哈佛大学和波士顿大学。

China-U.S. Research for Healthy Aging Network (CURHAN):  Currently underway is the building of a longitudinal national cohort study intended to pinpoint the susceptibility of the Chinese to various chronic diseases, increase awareness of the ways in which to prevent these diseases, and inform establishment of new China-specific intervention and treatment guidelines. Although China has been the site of previous epidemiological studies of chronic disease, the CURHAN will adopt FHS’ methodological principles to produce results that will equip China’s healthcare professionals, from front-line providers up to high-level policy makers, with a knowledge base more comprehensive and more precise than any previous study. Using an open-source design, the study’s protocols will be widely shared with Chinese researchers throughout the country, with training modules designed and delivered by China’s leading researchers and data collection procedures monitored to ensure compliance to high quality standards. All the data will be housed in a centralized database and made widely available in order to maximize scientific discovery from this valuable database.

To spearhead this effort are researchers and business leaders from China and U.S. institutions, including Peking Union Medical College, BGI, Hefei University of Technology, Harvard University and Boston University.
