Channing Division of Network Medicine Cohorts and Core Services

The Channing Division of Network Medicine (CDNM) is home to a number of study populations, including the large populations in the Nurses’ Health Study (NHS) and Nurses’ Health Study II (NHS II), as well as a number of smaller study populations in asthma and COPD. These study populations collectively include more than 350,000 subjects.

CDNM is also home to two core facilities, as defined by the National Institutes of Health: The BWH/Harvard Cohorts Biorepository, which houses biological samples from NHS and NHS II subjects, and the Channing Computer Core, which tracks, maintains, and stores information on all CDNM cohort samples and supports scientists in performing research using CDNM cohort information.
