UK Human Data Community

Launched in November 2023, this community focuses on ELIXIR-UK activities aligned with the ELIXIR Human Data Community (HDC) networks.  These include Health Data, Federated Human Data, Rare Diseases, Cancer Data and Human Copy Number Variation.

We welcome participation from anyone interested in human data in the life sciences.  

We meet every two months over Zoom and focus on UK updates from across the HDC networks, sharing experiences, signposting resources, and discussing new opportunities to get involved.  

If you wish to be involved in this community, please sign up for the mailing list and meeting invites.
