Step 1: Determine Sample Availability
For access to samples from the PDBP Biorepository, Investigators must first apply for a PDBP Data Management Resource (DMR) account to query for sample availability. Once an account is obtained, biosample information can be found in the NINDS Biorepository PDBP Sample Catalog within the Query module. For assistance with DMR accounts or PDBP biosamples, please contact the PDBP Operations Team (PDBP-OPS@mail.nih.gov). For all other cohorts, contact the appropriate representative below.
Between July 30-September 24, 2019 requests for biospecimens from BioFIND, DATATOP, LRRK2 Cohort Consortium, and the 24-Hour Biofluid Sampling Study should apply directly to a new Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) Request for Applications (RFA) entitled Use of Parkinson’s Disease Biosamples, found here. This RFA will also review funding and biosample requests from additional cohort studies including SURE-PD2, SURE-PD3, STEADY-PD3, FS-Zone, AV-112, CERE-120, Parkinson’s At Risk (PARS), Parkinson’s Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI), Systemic Synuclein Sampling Study (S4), and LRRK2 Biobanking Initiative. More information about available MJFF biosample resources can be found in our Biorepository Catalogue.
