MASALA welcomes proposals from both MASALA investigators and external investigators interested in working with MASALA data or collected biospecimens.

Propose a manuscript using MASALA data (Analysis Plan)

Propose an ancillary study involving MASALA participants or specimens (Ancillary Study)

  • A MASALA ancillary study is one that uses MASALA resources and derives external funding. 
  • A study that involves the collection of new data, either directly from participants or from previously collected samples, images, or other sources is an ancillary study, regardless of the method of funding.
  • A study that provides external funding for the Coordinating Center, Clinic Centers, or a Reading Center, is an ancillary study. 
  • Each ancillary study must include a MASALA Principal Investigator on the proposal.
  • Please refer to the MASALA Ancillary Study Proposal Form and MASALA Ancillary Study Policy for complete instructions.
