COVID-19 Data Resources for Population Scientists

In this article, we highlight research tools for population scientists interested in COVID-19-related data. A previous article in this newsletter compiled a broad range of NIH research resources (grants policy notices, funding announcements, research tools, and blog posts) and ways for researchers to stay informed about new developments related to the COVID-19 or coronavirus pandemic.

There are several open-access sources of data related to COVID-19 that NIH supports:

NIH also offers a few compendiums of survey tools for collecting COVID-19-related information:

Investigators interested in collecting COVID-19-related data may also be interested in this upcoming webinar, hosted by the ENRICH (Ethical aNd Regulatory Issues in Cancer ResearcH) forum, “Re-Purposing Research Samples During a Pandemic: Bridging Public Health Ethics and Research Ethics Frameworks.” The speakers will discuss the idea of using previously collected identifiable research biospecimens without reconsent to directly address an infectious disease pandemic.

These webpages on Information for NIH Applicants and Recipients of NIH FundingExternal Web Site Policy and COVID-19 Information for Cancer Researchers are also good places to look for updates on NIH and NCI guidance, FAQs, and resources related to COVID-19.
