How to collaborate

The Seremban Diabetes Cohort Study welcomes interested researchers, industries and collaborators worldwide to participate in the study. Collaboration is encouraged as it helps to maximise the scientific impacts and wealth of the available data of the 5,000 diabetic individuals and their family members for a 12-years follow up. The main aim of the study is to identify the common causes and characteristics of the development of diabetes and its complications. Access to the data is based on request and sharing of the data will be monitored by the steering committee for the best benefits of the consented individuals as well as most impactful research discoveries related to personalised patient management and care.

In order to facilitate access and ensure the optimal scientific outcomes, the Seremban Diabetes Cohort Committee requests all potential Principal Investigators (collaborators) to submit the following:

  1. Researcher(s) profile(s)
  2. Proposal
  3. Requested variables/parameters/samples
  4. Research team
  5. Data management plan
  6. NMRR/MREC approval
  7. Funding and sponsorship information
