Our approach to comprehensive data management is well-established under the leadership of data manager Ms. Stacy Selke, who has been key to facilitating the VRCʼs advances. Ms. Selke has 25 years of data management experience at the UW VRC. Soon after she started working here, she transferred the entire database (stored on the UW mainframe and accessed through punch cards) to an IBM PC AT which had an amazingly-spacious 40MB hard drive. She has developed and cemented, through long-standing collaborations with several laboratory-based investigators, rigorous procedures for obtaining and linking accurate laboratory results. This has allowed VRC studies to be strategically implemented based on a unique multi-disciplinary approach.
