FHS Guide for Researchers
Edition: December 4, 2019

Dear Framingham Heart Study Research Community,

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) has announced plans to fund a limited clinic exam cycle in the Generation 3 and Omni 2 Cohorts of the Framingham Heart Study (FHS).

The examination is expected to begin on or about January 2, 2022. The exam is intended in part to serve as a platform for additional, independently funded exam components via investigator-initiated grants or other independently funded projects to enrich the exam data collection with additional hypothesis-driven content. The research aims of such exam-related ancillary projects need not be limited to those within the mission of the NHLBI but must be consistent with and/or complement FHS study objectives.
