How may we use and share your samples and health information for other research?

The National Institutes of Health is sponsoring this research. The samples and information we collect in this study may help advance other research. If you join this study, we may remove all information that identifies you (for example, your name, medical record number, and date of birth) and use these de-identified samples and data in other research. Information and/or samples may be shared with investigators at our hospitals, at other academic institutions or at for-profit, commercial entities. We may share study data that has no identifiable information through the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI)'s BioLINCC Clinical Data Repository and the National Sleep Research Resource, two research data repositories. The research data will allow investigators to further study sleep and related health measures, behavior, and physiology. It won't be possible to link the information or samples back to you. You will not be asked to provide additional informed consent for these uses.
