National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI)
The purpose of this Notice is to announce that the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Supplement to the NIH Policy for Data Management and Sharing (NHLBI Supplement) is effective May 25, 2023, and replaces the previous NHLBI Policy for Data Sharing from Clinical Trials and Epidemiological Studies. The NHLBI Supplement harmonizes with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Final NIH Policy for Data Management and Sharing (NIH DMS Policy), the latter which became effective on January 25, 2023, and applies to research funded or conducted by NIH that results in the generation of scientific data. The NHLBI Supplement also establishes additional expectations for NHLBI-supported researchers subject to the NIH DMS Policy, including for special compliance timelines, data repositories, and ancillary studies.
The NHLBI Supplement may be updated as deemed appropriate by NHLBI to reflect updates to NIH guidance or policy or any significant technological developments that may impact scientific data sharing policies and practices.
Questions and/or concerns regarding the NHLBI supplement, should be sent to:
