Interrogator Update Released

We are pleased to announce the latest release of the Interrogator with several exciting new features! Users can save and reload their work. We’ve used this new functionality to construct a set of highlighted analyses visible to all users. Each of these is linked to a Data Partner publication and reproduces part of the analysis reported in the paper, allowing users to explore these results in the GAAIN environment. These analyses highlight our Data Partner research, and give users several examples of how to use the Interrogator to work with variables, create cohorts, and run preliminary analyses.
