The International Research Consortium on Corpus Callosum and Cerebral Connectivity, IRC5, is a multidisciplinary effort to promote discoveries leading to understanding the causes, consequences, and effective interventions, for disorders of the corpus callosum and associated disorders of cerebral connectivity.
The consortium is composed of scientists and clinicians from around the world striving to make major discoveries that will make a significant difference to the lives of affected individuals.
The consortium benefits from a shared database using standardized collection tools. Investigators can submit their data and access data collected by other investigators or contributors. Investigators can initiate research projects from both existing and new data collected within the consortium. All of these activities occur in a highly collaborative manner to accelerate research and promote data sharing and to also preserve the progress made by individual investigators and prior collaborative arrangements.
