DPUK Data Portal
The DPUK Data Portal is a world-class repository and analysis environment for dementia-optimised cohort data. Free to use, it gives researchers anywhere in the world access to high-quality, multi-modal data from more than 50 population and clinical cohort studies, comprising records for over 3.5 million people. Available data includes lifestyle information, cognitive test results, brain imaging, and genetics.
Researchers can identify which cohorts and data are relevant to their proposed research question or area of study, apply for access to the data, and then analyse it in a secure, remote environment complete with data linkage, analytical software packages, and multi-cohort capability.
The vision is simple: to optimise access to the UK's rich heritage of health data collection, powering it with state-of-the-art technology to take on the challenge of finding ways to prevent and treat dementia.
DPUK Reach is an online user group of dementia researchers and data scientists, providing opportunities for knowledge-sharing, collaboration and technical support in the DPUK Data Portal – all in the pursuit of advancing research into the detection and early treatment of dementia.
