Ancillary Studies

SHOW Ancillary Studies have built on the SHOW infrastructure and contributed to the richness of our data, biosamples, and findings. Ancillary studies have ranged from focus groups on physical activity to statewide microbiome sample collection on hundreds of individuals, and many studies in between. Prior SHOW Ancillary Studies have greatly contributed to translational scientific knowledge and public health surveillance.

An Ancillary Study is any study that partners with SHOW to leverage SHOW study development or data collection services and brings funding from outside the existing SHOW funding sources.
