NIDA Harmonization for Human Studies

  • NIDA developed a series of core elements for assessing and harmonizing demographic information and substance use history for genetic studies. The core elements can be accessed here. NIDA strongly encourages all applicants to discuss how these core elements are addressed in their data sharing plan by either assessing them directly or indirectly by proxy measures. Other measures can be found in the PhenX Substance Abuse and Addiction Project.
