To access TCGA Controlled Data on the CGC, you need to be either a PI or a downloader in an approved dbGaP application. Your PI can add you as an approved "downloader" via the Downloaders tab on dbGaP.

Learn step-by-step how your PI can add you as a downloader.

Note: Don’t be worried if you are not immediately able to log into these systems after being set up as a Downloader. Because of the way the dbGaP system was set up, it can take up to 24 hours before access rights are updated in other systems such as cgHub or the CGC.
