  2. Researchers – can search de-identified reports and create case sets/orders. They have access to the Query and My Case Sets tabs.
  3. Honest brokers – can search reports and process orders. They have access to the Query and Manage Orders tabs.
  4. Administrators – perform administrative functions such as creating new users and studies and assigning user roles. They have access to the Manage Accounts tab.

Users can be assigned multiple roles as appropriate for their work needs.
