NICHD/DIPHR Biospecimen Repository Access and Data Sharing (BRADS)


The Division of Intramural Population Health Research (DIPHR) maintains a repository of data and biospecimen collections from various epidemiologic studies and clinical trials.

  • To promote access to these resources, the Division has established the Biospecimen Repository Access and Data Sharing (BRADS) program. The BRADS Committee works to establish procedures and guidelines that govern this program and that are consistent with the NIH Data Sharing policy.
  • All investigators must submit a proposal to gain access to data and to biospecimens. Proposals will be evaluated on scientific merit by an ad hoc technical panel overseen by the BRADS committee.
  • Instructions are found in How To Request Access .
