What is the MAARC?
The Methodology and Advanced Analytics Resource Center (MAARC) is a National Institute of Health (NIH) funded research center based at the University of Chicago. The MAARC is a group comprised of four cores that will conduct opioid clinical trials implemented within justice context. Through national partnerships, the MAARC will support clinical trials with forecasting, rapid real-time assessments, explication and exploration of trial findings, and cost-effectiveness analysis. Together, the long-term mission of these cores is to reduce opioid use disorder and overdose, revolutionize opioid interventions, and to impact associated epidemics such as mental health disorders, HCV, and HIV.
