Call for proposals for the biobank of the Canadian Health Measures Survey: From May 1 to June 30, 2013, Statistics Canada is inviting researchers to apply for access to blood, urine and DNA samples from the Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS) for use in health studies. The biospecimens are available to any Canadian researcher that completes a review process and would benefit from a national population survey of about 5,600 participants per collection cycle. Please visit the CHMS biobank website to download the application form and for more information about the review process.
