Discover more about Inflammation and Immunity, a new UK-wide research driver programme funded by Health Data Research UK (HDR UK).
The process of locating, accessing, curating, and linking data from Electronic Health Records is complex and time-consuming. Inflammation and Immunity, a new, UK-wide research driver programme, aims to streamline these procedures by developing gold-standard, clinically validated, research-ready datasets across the 4 UK nations.
Funded by Health Data Research UK, our mission is to lay these ‘data foundations’ to help driver health care innovation using data from across the whole UK population and transform our understanding of inflammation-mediated conditions.
What to expect
As part of work delivered by the BREATHE Health Data Research Hub and NIHR Imperial Biomedical Research Centre, members of our team previously established data registries for common respiratory conditions in England, Scotland, and Wales. Secured within the Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD), DataLoch (a data service for South-East Scotland) and SAIL Databank, respectively, these registries link relevant primary, secondary and specialist care data for conditions such as Asthma and COPD.
Register and discover how we will build upon this work, and re-apply our learning to other inflammatory conditions.
Join the conversation and hear from representatives from each of our partnered data providers (including Trusted Research Environments), about their policies, processes and more.
