We would like to share the internal release of the baseline data from the first 1500 research participants (V1500.0) for the EPAD Longitudinal Cohort Study. The data set is now available and accessible to all EPAD partners and Trial Delivery Centres for an embargoed period of 6 months. Following which access will be opened to the entire research community globally.
The V1500.0 data release represents the second formal data release from the EPAD project. In our chosen nomenclature (V1500.0): V=version, 1,500 is the number of sequentially recruited research participants and ‘.0’ refers to the data collected at the baseline visit.
The data set is made available via secure online workspaces in order to facilitate collaboration between people and teams with similar research aims.
The previous V500.0 data release recently went into open and external access in November 2019. Academic researchers and institutions from all over the world are invited to access the EPAD Research Access Process and begin the application process by visiting the EPAD LCS Research Access webpage, where you will find a variety of resources to support your research.
