HDR UK Team of the Year Award

A team composed of five NHS Trusts, including Newcastle, has won the Health Data Research UK Team of the Year award for a Sprint Exemplar Project in Rare Diseases.

The team worked incredibly hard to collect and transfer the clinical data of NIHR BioResource volunteers to a secure computing cloud environment to be anonymised and made available for research. This initiative has the potential to transform health research and the understanding of rare genetic disorders.
