We have found in many situations that a collaborative approach to research is advantageous
to affiliated and non-affiliated investigators alike. Those who include MESA Investigators in
their research are able to take advantage of their considerable knowledge of the MESA dataset
as well as knowledge of research and analytic methodologies appropriate for the data.
In keeping with this collaborative approach, researchers interested in working with MESA
Investigators are welcome to submit a manuscript proposal or ancillary study proposal directly
to the study. Please feel free to review additional materials related to establishing a
collaborative relationship with MESA at the following links (or send an e-mail
to the Coordinating Center at firstname.lastname@example.org).
Specific Analytic Opportunities
After careful review of the MESA publication record, the following list of analytic
opportunities were identified as general topics where the data have not yet been adequately
explored or published. There may be manuscripts in development, so it is strongly
recommended that researchers with interest in collaborating on a research topic contact
the point person directly (or the Coordinating Center at email@example.com)
to initiate discussion and explore collaborative opportunities.
