You may use ALLHAT data to either:

  • Propose a new paper topic for publication in a peer-reviewed journal
  • Propose a new ALLHAT-related study to an external funding agency
    • May involve collecting new information from outside databases (e.g., CMS) or analyzing stored serum or DNA samples

See How You Can Obtain ALLHAT Data for details on various ways to access ALLHAT data.

STEP 1: Check to see that your topic has not already been addressed. See Highlights of Research Already Accomplished or in Progress for information about studies that the ALLHAT Collaborative Research Group has already completed.

STEP 2: Submit a Concept Proposal to Dr. Ellen Breckenridge [].

STEP 3: If your concept is approved, a Coordinating Center liaison will be assigned. You will be invited to provide a more detailed proposal. For proposal templates and sample proposals, see:

If you are a new investigator, you will also need to identify and contact an ALLHAT sponsor. Upon request, the Coordinating Center can help you find one.

STEP 4: The ALLHAT study leadership will review the detailed proposal. If accepted, a timetable will be developed and work can proceed.
