NIDDK-CR R4R- a program of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, NIH

About The NIDDK Central Repository (NIDDK-CR) is a contract supported and centrally managed repository that acquires, stores, and distributes resources generated from large multicenter studies supported by NIDDK. The mission of the NIDDK-CR is to facilitate sharing of resources for secondary uses. Secondary research use helps to maximize research participants contributions and decreases duplicative sampling efforts, increasing the scientific value and impact of the originating study.
How we share on the Vivli Platform NIDDK-CR studies are listed for searching on the Vivli platform. To obtain resources, data requestors are required to register with NIDDK-CR as registered users and complete a data access request application on the NIDDK-CR R4R website. If NIDDK-CR approves the request, the data requestor obtains access to the data packages directly via NIDDK-CR R4R website. The data packages may be uploaded into the Vivli designated secure research platform for analysis with data of other Vivli members as part of an approved request.

The NIDDK-CR R4R website will support searching for resources generated by NIDDK funded projects and held by the Vivli repository. NIDDK-CR R4R will direct requestors to the Vivli platform to request these data.

Additional Conditions for Access Local IRB/Ethics approval, or certification of exemption from IRB/Ethics review, or Not Human Subjects Research determination by IRB/Ethics group.
