Data discovery platforms
Many platforms exist to describe the data that is available to disease researchers
Through these platforms individual researchers obtain the contact details they need to make individual data access requests. They make arrangements to transfer datasets so they can work with them in their institution and it is often a complicated and lengthy process. DPUK presents a completely new model.
