DiaComp awardees must follow NIH and HHS policies regarding the sharing of data and resources with the scientific community (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/sharing.htm) and agree to submit to the DiaComp web portal all data and resources resulting from the execution of the awarded application. Data and resources may include, but are not limited to:

  • histology images,
  • protocols,
  • experimental data,
  • microarray data, and
  • progress report(s).

All data and resources generated with DiaComp support will be made immediately available to “active” DiaComp awardees (see below) and publicly available on the DiaComp website: (1) at the time of first publication, or (2) one year after the award ends. Under certain circumstances, investigators may request an exception to the DiaComp public release policy by contacting NIH Program staff and requesting a waiver. Such requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and waivers will be granted only with sufficient and compelling prior justification.

DiaComp awardees are considered “active” and granted full access to the DiaComp website as members of the DiaComp “Steering Committee” for the duration of their funding period plus 4 years. Outgoing awardees may request an extension from NIH Program staff beyond this “active” period.

Proprietary data and resources will be excluded from sharing consistent with NIH and HHS policies (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/sharing.htm).
