UTMB Rapid Acquisition of Pre- and Post-Incident Disaster Data Protocol (UT-RAPIDD)

Research Protocol
Publicly Available, No Cost
Similar to the NIEHS Rapid Acquisition of Pre- and Post-Incident Disaster Data (RAPIDD) protocol, the UTMB RAPIDD (UT-RAPIDD) protocols main goal is to establish a human subject's research protocol for future research response before or following a natural or manmade disaster including floods, earthquakes, or chemical spills. A research registry of community members and/or first responders who live in close proximity to the disaster area will be created based on their exposure to the disaster. The protocol then provides the steps for collecting sociodemographic, health status, occupational exposure and lifestyle information from that cohort before or immediately following exposure to a disaster area. Additionally, the protocol outlines the collection, processing, and storage of biological samples that will be collected before or immediately after exposure to a disaster area. The UT-RAPIDDs primary goal is to have all steps of a research study completed prior to a disaster so that rapid implementation and data collection can occur.
