HSD Guidance and Forms for UW researchers for submission to and request data from the NIH database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGaP) are posted. 

The GWAS dbGaP General Guidance document provides a comprehensive overview of HSD principles relating to the submission of data to dbGaP as well as request for data from dbGaP.  Included in this document are the procedures involved in the process as well as a listing of the forms and documents that are needed for your submission to HSD. 

The GWAS dbGaP Supplement is the main form for information if you are planning to submit data from your research study to dbGaP.  As well as providing an easy-to-complete checklist for all NIH-required information for submission to dbGaP, the document provides an overview of elements that are needed in your consent documents and sample text that you may use. 

Please contact Shannon Sewards (ssewards@uw.edu) if you have further questions.
