Research Master ID: Live in SPARC

As of February 1st, Research Master ID is live in SPARCRequest. A Research Master ID (RMID) is a unique numeric identifier that links a research study across multiple MUSC research systems. The purpose of the RMID is to allow for accurate identification of research studies, improve tracking and reporting of institutional research metrics and data accuracy. A RMID is required for all research that include human subjects. See #23 on our latest new feature list (SPARCRequest v1.9.5 & SPARCFulfillment v2.4.0) for more information.

If you have any questions in regard to the new Research Master ID, please contact the SUCCESS Center (success@musc.edu).

SPARC Fun Fact

In 2014, MUSC’s NIH funded CTSA Hub (SCTR Institute) released an open source research management system named SPARCRequest.  The system supports the collaborations and communications between research teams and providers of research services to facilitate efficient, quality clinical and translational research to bring medical treatments to patients faster.  SPARCRequest has a rapidly growing open source community featuring 20+ institutions in various stages of implementation.  See map below for our SPARC community of adopters.
