December Sessions:

Multi-omics in UK Biobank

This session will cover the potential for vast amounts of new data to be generated from UK Biobank’s biological samples. The session will include information about the measurement and analysis of metabolomics, proteomics, epigenetics and infectious disease markers in UK Biobank for health-related research.

How UK Biobank is enabling dementia research

The first of our afternoon sessions will explore how UK Biobank is enabling dementia research, and provide insights into how repeat imaging and digital tools could be used to better characterise cognitive decline and disease classification.

Enhanced health outcomes data in UK Biobank

Our final session will cover UK Biobank’s strategy for incorporating new data on health outcomes into the resource. This includes linkage to cancer histopathology datasets, and ophthalmic healthcare records. The session will also cover approaches needed to characterise health outcomes at-scale across diverse health record data.
