The Utah Population Database (UPDB) is a unique and world-renowned University of Utah resource for genetic, epidemiologic and demographic research. There are currently over 100 projects covering a broad range of research topics that have been approved to use the UPDB. Three distinct but related sessions are being offered to describe the research opportunities available by accessing the UPDB: the first introduces the database and provides examples of its current and potential use in research projects; the second offers hands-on computer training on the UPDB Limited Query Tool; and the third explains the regulatory process for requesting access to the UPDB for a specific research project.

Session 3: Utah Population Database: Access and Approval for Research Projects

The Utah Resource for Genetic and Epidemiologic Research (RGE) administers access to the Utah Population Database (UPDB) and other linked data sets. This presentation will provide guidance on the policies and procedures necessary to use and gain access to the UPDB for research projects. All research projects require RGE and Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval.
