Please appreciate that we ask all investigators using cohort data to cover basic computing and project proposal processing costs (first year minimal cost of ****$2500**** for non-trainee investigators and ****$2200**** for students / trainees with documentation of status; the actual costs for each project will depend on the scope of the project).
In addition, for collaborations that propose the use of cohort biospecimens, there are fees for accessing biospecimens that are separate from assay costs.
External collaborators will be provided a login and password to get access to the data, our computing system and detailed documentation and training materials for where to find data, what analytic tools are available and examples of analyses.
Please note that datasets are not routinely sent to external collaborators (except for funded large consortial projects).
For any questions about external collaborations, please consult our FAQ page. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1GMZfzwBu_wTo_is-Mpsp0PK-fQuBADCtb-G94biE_rI/edit?usp=sharing Thank you!

The questionnaires for NHS1 and NHS2 can be found on the webpage: http://nurseshealthstudy.org/participants/questionnaires
The questions asked in NHS3 can be found in the link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1lxR5i-W_mfLzIgzhyyY_EQrBoq-sWRXC/view?usp=sharing
The questionnaires for GUTS (Growing Up Today Study) can be found on the webpage: http://nhs2survey.org/gutswordpress/index.php/previous-questionnaires/
Please check all that apply. PLEASE NOTE: Unlike NHS1 and NHS2, in GUTS and NHS3, diseases are NOT confirmed, so the data from these cohorts are usually not suitable for disease/mortality analyses. Please check GUTS or NHS3 only if you are sure that these cohorts have collected the data needed for your proposed work.
Is this Proposal Part of a Larger Consortium Project?
(e.g., international genetic consortia)
