NIAID supports and complies with all NIH data sharing policies, including the NIH Genomic Data Sharing (GDS) Policy. By implementing the GDS policy, NIAID continues its long-standing tradition of timely genomic data release through broadly accessible open or controlled-access data repositories. Timely and widespread genomic data sharing maximizes the public benefit of U.S. federally funded research.
The NIH Genomic Data Sharing Policy does the following:
- Promotes broad and responsible sharing of both human and non-human genomic data
- Ensures appropriate protections for research involving human data and oversight of research conduct, data quality, data management, data sharing, and data use
