Request for Research and Data


Pursuant to the Amended Court Order dated September 4, 2013, WVU is not authorized to release individually identifiable or individual level data to third parties under any conditions, whether such data constitutes protected health information or not. However, requestors can propose a research project, and submit code that allows the research question to be answered.  Submitted code for a project that is accepted by the C8 Data Oversight Committee will be run on behalf of the submitting scientist by data holders identified in a West Virginia University IRB protocol.


For any questions related to the process of requesting C8 data for research, please contact:
