In October of 2008, the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) was awarded a 5-year contract by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) to develop the National Coordinating Center for the Newborn Screening Translational Research Network (NBSTRN).

Among the National Coordinating Center goals, the NBSTRN will develop resources and infrastructure that provides the research community access to robust newborn screening resources. One of these key resources is the Virtual Repository of Dried Blood Spots (VRDBS).
