HDSS and Biobank have collaborated on blood sampling for general use. HDSS also facilitates nested sampling. The terms and costs will be charged to researchers. Because HDSS has a population of data that is shared, there is a sharing principle if researchers want to take biological samples. In nested research, the data is generated for researchers, but after the use of the data is considered complete, HDSS hopes that there is an agreement that the data will be donated, as well as biosamples. So that there will be more data in HDSS and the possibility to utilize more data.
What is nested research?
Researchers can collect direct data (primary data) in the HDSS Sleman research area by following the applicable procedures. The benefits of nested research are as follows:
- Get research data with better sample selection.
- The efficiency of time, cost, and energy because data collection can be organized by HDSS Sleman.
- Enriching data analysis because researchers can take advantage of data that has been routinely collected by HDSS Sleman.
