MESA Ancillary Studies
Definition of an ancillary study:
1) A project that collects new data in MESA, whether directly
from participants or from previously collected samples, images,
or other sources (e.g., medical records).
2) A project that analyzes existing MESA data as part of a new
external funding application, for which additional MESA Coordinating
Center (CC) services will be requested beyond downloading of data already
available on the MESA website (e.g., analysis by a CC Statistician or
preparation of a unique dataset). Note: as of November, 2010, analysis-only
grants involving no such additional CC services require the submission of a
Manuscript Proposal form, but not an Ancillary Study Proposal Form. Submit
the Manuscript Proposal form online and see MESA Publications submission
details at: http://www.mesa-nhlbi.org/Publications.aspx.
To check the availability of online data, please contact your MESA Sponsor.
Philosophy: MESA investigators are encouraged to consider ancillary
studies and to involve other investigators, within and outside of MESA, in this
