The National Sleep
Research Resource

The National Sleep Research Resource offers free access to large collections of de-identified physiological signals and clinical data elements collected in well-characterized research cohorts and clinical trials.

The NSRR encourages interested researchers, educators, and trainees to join its community. Members can contribute their own data and tools for sharing, provide information and feedback on ways to improve sleep and physiological signal data exchange and analysis, and offer ideas on how to make NSRR and other resources work best for the scientific community.

The NSRR is supported by the National Heart, Lung,
and Blood Institute (R24 HL114473, 75N92019R002).

Answers to common questions about the NSRR.
How do I access data?

Start at the datasets page and click Request Data Access on a dataset that you want to access. Most datasets require the user to complete a data request form. The NSRR Data Access Committee reviews incoming data requests and responds to them within 1-2 weeks of submission.


PhysioNet provides access to large and diverse collections of recorded physiologic signals and related open-source software. PhysioNet currently includes over 200 annotated polysomnograms in 4 collections, and more than 60 other databases, including the MIMIC and MIMIC II Waveform and Clinical Databases collected from over 30,000 ICU patients, and a wide range of specialized data sets from clinical and research studies.


The Database of Genotypes and Phenotypes is a National Institutes of Health sponsored repository charged to archive, curate and distribute information produced by studies investigating the interaction of genotype and phenotype.


The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute Biologic Specimen and Data Repository Information Coordinating Center is the coming together of two entities: the NHLBI Biologic Specimen Repository, managed by the NHLBI, Division of Blood Diseases and Resources, Transfusion Medicine and Cellular Therapeutics Branch, and the NHLBI Data Repository, managed by the NHLBI, Division of Prevention and Population Sciences, Epidemiology Branch. These two programs have always had a similar mission, namely to enhance and facilitate further research in cardiovascular, pulmonary and hematologic conditions by providing access to qualified investigators to stored biospecimen and data collections.
