COVID-19 Impact on NNTC

submitted by Data Coordinating Center on 03/16/2020 9:02 AM

As you are all aware, the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting many academic and medical institutions. The NNTC is currently navigating some of these impacts which include disruptions to participant visits and assessments, data collection, and specimen distributions in support of approved request applications. Investigators with approved applications should anticipate delays in shipments due to COVID-19 as some sites may need to temporarily close or prepare for such a closure. The Data Coordinating Center (DCC) will continue to accept new applications; however, investigators should be aware that review by the NNTC Allocations Committee may also be delayed. Approved requests for data likely will be less affected, but still may experience some delay. Any questions or comments regarding potential delays can be directed to the NNTC DCC at We thank everyone for their continued understanding during this challenging event.
