Repository: National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Data and Specimen Hub (NICHD DASH)
|Repository Full Name||National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Data and Specimen Hub|
|Repository Acronym||NICHD DASH|
|General Theme or Special Population||
NICHD DASH is a centralized resource for researchers to store and access de-identified data from NICHD-funded research studies for secondary research use. It is a mechanism for NICHD-funded investigators to share research data from studies in accordance with NIH Data Sharing Policies. Many of the NICHD-funded research studies also collected biospecimens that are stored in the NICHD Contracted Biorepository. To provide access to these biospecimens, NICHD DASH stores and make available to other investigators the biospecimen catalog for studies that have associated research data in NICHD DASH. By supporting data and biospecimen access through NICHD DASH, NICHD aims to accelerate scientific findings and improve human health.

The Rehabilitation Research Cross-dataset Variable Catalog has been developed through the Center for Large Data Research & Data Sharing in Rehabilitation (CLDR). The Center for Large Data Research and Data Sharing in Rehabilitation involves a consortium of investigators from the University of Texas Medical Branch, Cornell University's Yang Tan Institute (YTI), and the University of Michigan. The CLDR is funded by NIH - National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, through the National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research, the National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke, and the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. (P2CHD065702).
Other CLDR supported resources and collaborative opportunities:
- Archive of Data on Disability to Enable Policy and research (ADDEP)
- Data Sharing & Archiving at CLDR
- Pilot Project Program
- Visiting Scholars Program
