The Collaborative Studies Coordinating Center (CSCC) is a division within the Department of Biostatistics of the School of Public Health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, NC (UNC). As the coordinating center for a number of multi-center clinical trials and epidemiology studies, the CSCC provides study design, data management, statistical analysis, quality assurance, and study management services to a broad array of projects funded primarily by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The organization includes faculty from the departments of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Medicine and research staff with training and experience in biostatistics, epidemiology, computer science/data management, and project management.

Major research programs for which the CSCC currently serves as coordinating center include the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study (ARIC); Adolescent Medicine Trials Network for HIV/AIDS Interventions (ATN); Back Pain Consortium (BACPAC) as part of the Helping to End Addiction Long-term Initiative (HEAL); Subpopulations and Intermediate Outcome Measures in COPD Study (SPIROMICS); Biological Underpinning of COPD Heterogeneity and Progression (SPIROMICSII); Precision Interventions for Severe and/or Exacerbation Prone Asthma Network(PrecISE); Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos (HCHS/SOL); and Preconceptional Health of Latinas and its Association with Child Adiposity (HCHS-FLOR).
