Enjoying information security surprises me. My PhD and subsequent research focused on evolutionary biology, but a move to Australia tempted me to try wider roles at the Menzies School of Health Research, including a stint with their Kidney Health Team. Fast forward a couple of years and I took up the position of Research Manager at the UK Renal Registry in Bristol.
Launching an important piece of UK research infrastructure: The UK Longitudinal Linkage Collaboration
Robin Flaig, our Deputy Director, talks to CLOSER about the launch of the UK LLC, the data held within our Trusted Research Environment and how UK based researchers can apply.
The UK Longitudinal Linkage Collaboration (UK LLC) is a national resource for COVID-19 research. It’s a new and globally unique Trusted Research Environment (TRE) that offers predictable and efficient access to longitudinal data for researchers and analysts across the UK. Through a single application the UK LLC TRE offers pre-pandemic and pandemic data from more than 20 longitudinal population studies linked with health data.
