Virtual Data Enclave (VDE)
Investigators who meet approved criteria may

at the CCC.
There is a base fee of $3,000 for the use of
the VDE, and documentation of local IRB approval for your manuscript as well as
an executed Data Use Agreement is required.
For more detailed information, please see the VDE
Brochure with a list of FAQs.
