Update: NIH continues with planning for new Data Management and Sharing Policy

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is seeking comments on a new resource documenting best practices for developing informed consent materials to facilitate data/biospecimen storage for future use. This new resource is being developed as part of the NIH’s plan to implement a new Data Management and Sharing Policy in 2023. Read more about the new resource, and the upcoming policy implementation on the NIH Extramural Nexus blog.
