Our Resources

What resources does SALSA-SGC provide?

Clinical information and biological samples are collected from participants every 3 months for as long as the participant is able to. Biological samples are processed and stored across three SALSA laboratories. Genomic data is routinely generated using this sample collection.

  • Onset of disease
  • Regions affected
  • Ancestry
  • Disease progression
