  • Click on the study to open the Study Page
  • At the top of the Study Page, select Request Access to Register This Study to navigate to the Study Registration Access Request form.

In cases where a study is represented by multiple records on the HEAL Data Platform but data and/or other digital artifacts will only be shared collectively (e.g., through a DCC or in the case of a study that has records from multiple years of funding and/or supplements but will be sharing data only through the parent award), it's likely not necessary that each grant be represented and registered as a stand-alone record on the Platform. If you would like to discuss the representation of your awards on the HEAL Data Platform, please contact us at
