About the Health Data Research Hubs seminar series
Since launching in October 2019, seven Health Data Research Hubs have demonstrated that their uniquely collaborative, cross-sector and fast-paced method of working delivers results that make a difference to patients’ lives. Led by Health Data Research UK (HDR UK), in the past year the Hubs have also pivoted to support the UK’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, enabling research in areas such as infection rates, vaccine rollout, and understanding the impact of COVID-19 on specific disease areas.
In May and June 2021, HDR UK will be hosting a series of seminars showcasing each Hub in detail.
