National Biological Sample and Data Repository for Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

Objective
The purpose of this study is to establish a biorepository of biological samples and genetic data of patient with WHO group 1 PAH.  Once established the function of the biorepository is to collect the samples from the patients, generate the proposed genetic data, and widely promote and distribute the samples/data to the scientific community.   No hypothesis driven science is proposed for this project.
