A new study, Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT), has been posted to BioLINCC. Data and specimens from this study are available for requests.
The SPRINT-POP data, based on the primary outcome paper and previously available for request through the BioLINCC website, have been incorporated into this SPRINT full study data release.
New information regarding secondary data and/or biospecimen analysis funding opportunities from NHLBI, NIDDK, and FDA has been added to the funding opportunities page. These NIH Exploratory (R21) grant funding opportunities may be applicable to research using BioLINCC resources. Additionally included is an NHLBI released Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) on Data Science R01 applications. Please see the funding opportunities page, which includes links to the NIH grant announcements, for more information.
The NHLBI is inviting novel Solutions for the NHLBI Big Data Analysis Challenge: Creating New Paradigms for Heart Failure Research. The goal of the challenge is to foster innovation in computational analysis and machine learning approaches utilizing large-scale NHLBI-funded datasets to identify new paradigms in heart failure research. The challenge aims to address the need for new open source disease models that can define sub-categorizations of adult heart failure to serve as a springboard for new research hypotheses and tool development in areas of heart failure research from basic to clinical settings.
NHLBI will award up to a total of $250,000. Up to five (5) winners will be selected, with each winning up to $50,000. The competition period ends at NOON EDT on August 28, 2020.

The Imaging Core Lab of the National Registry of Genetically Triggered Thoracic Aortic Aneurysms (GenTAC) is now considering applications from researchers who have obtained GenTAC data through BioLINCC and who wish to have additional or novel evaluation of GenTAC images beyond the image readings obtained under the original GenTAC study protocol. The application form, instructions, and contact information for the Imaging Core Lab will be made available for request upon approval and fulfillment of a GenTAC data request through BioLINCC.
A new open-access paper about BioLINCC metrics and results is now available on PLOS ONE:
