Data Sharing Policy

Data Sharing Policy

We are committed to the principles of high quality research that generate reliable results about the causes of and treatment of disease. The access policy for sharing is based on the MRC Policy and Guidance on Sharing of Research Data from Population and Patient Studies. All data sharing must meet the terms of existing participants' consent and study ethical approvals. Our Data Access and Sharing Policy defines the principles and processes for accessing and sharing our data and applies across the full breadth of our research.

We welcome proposals for projects and aim to make data as widely available as possible whilst safeguarding the privacy of our participants, protecting confidential data and maintaining the reputations of our studies and participants.
