Welcome

In 1948, FHS scientists and participants embarked on an ambitious project to identify risk factors for heart disease. Today, the study remains a world-class epicenter for cutting-edge heart, brain, bone, and sleep research.

Research Ideas for FHS Invited

Investigators are welcome to submit initiatives for new scientific studies using FHS resources. Initiatives may include use of existing resources, such as biospecimen, or new study content, such as additional questionnaires or exam procedures. Ideas may be submitted informally to Greta Lee Splansky. Proposals also may be submitted formally as web applications for FHS review.
