The GeneSTAR Research Program has an interest in collaborations proposed by investigators with good-standing in academic and research organizations.
GeneSTAR has a wealth of baseline and follow-up data, genotyping, and substudies, focused on cardiovascular disease, cerebrovascular disease, and attendant risk factors and processes.
The phenotype information on the Tab to the left will assist with a partial list of what is available. A bank of specimens is also also available under a materials transfer agreement with The Johns Hopkins University. Please contact us for information about how to obtain samples..
All requests are considered on their scientific merit and congruence with the consenting procedure.
Please read the Data Sharing Manual in its entirety before submitting a request for data or samples. Prior discussion with the study investigators is strongly encouraged to better assist in choices.

Please contact Lisa R Yanek, Director of our Analysis Unit who will put you in touch with the correct study investigators. Lryanek@jhmi.edu.
Most of our data and cell samples are also publicly available via NIH repositories.
We maintain an iPSC banking repository for nearly 200 cell lines at Johns Hopkins in the Becker Laboratory in Cardiology.
The cells are also available at WiCell, Inc. the home of the entire NHLBI NextGEN Project. WiCell can be searched using the following link to the Becker cells from GeneSTAR..
This collection contains 198 human induced pluripotent stem cell lines derived from PBMC of healthy brothers, sisters, and offspring of index cases and siblings of persons of early onset coronary disease, No subjects were affected with clinical coronary disease, stroke, or other overt vascular disease phenotypes at the time of the study. Our focus was on the differentiation to mk cells.
Cells may only be used for cardiovascular and cardiovascular related research and are not available for commercial use or for profit.
