Check out these newly published datasets in the UMB Data Catalog

Woman sits at computer monitor. The UMB Data Catalog is on the screen.

Every month, we will be highlighting new datasets added to the UMB Data Catalog. The UMB Data Catalog facilitates discovery of data by providing a searchable and browsable collection of records describing datasets generated by UMB researchers. Sharing a record of your data in the Catalog is also a great way to demonstrate compliance with data sharing policies!

The latest records showcase datasets from the fields of cardiac surgery, ophthalmology, and physical therapy.

Congrats to our UMB researchers on these publications!
