The National Institutes of Health (NIH) advocates making available to the public the results and accomplishments of the activities that it funds. NIH assures that research resources developed with public funds become readily available to the broader research community in a timely manner for further research, development, application, and secondary data analysis in the expectation that this will lead to products and knowledge of benefit to the public health. The Alzheimer’s Disease Sequencing Project follows the NIH policy that whenever possible research resources be made available to qualified investigators. Please refer to the following documents on data use and data sharing.
