HCHS/SOL is a unique source of a well-characterized population. The study welcomes consortium proposals for collaboration with other important studies to address new research questions. Please review the information provided here if interested in submitting a consortium proposal. The information presented below is intended for potential investigators. Consortia are subset studies of HCHS/SOL with goals beyond the original study.

NOTE: Consortia do not collect new data. If interested in collecting new information and/or biological samples, require submission of a full Ancillary Study proposal.

If you are interested in submitting a proposal for a Consortium, please contact one of our study PIs to sponsor/be liaison with consortium. If you need assistance, email us at

Submissions require a form found at Collaborating with HCHS/SOL webpages and are accepted through the website portal. A website account is required prior to submission of a Consortium Proposal. Your sponsoring HCHS/SOL PI should review the entire process with you.
