The Diabetes Data Science Catalyst was launched by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) Data Science Centre in partnership with Diabetes UK, HDR UK and the BHF. Its aim is to accelerate understanding of the links between cardiovascular disease and diabetes by harnessing the power of linked data.

At this showcase, Catalyst lead and BHF Data Science Centre Associate Director, Professor Ewan Pearson, will give an overview of the aims and plans for the project, including details of our upcoming funding call for drivers projects. Senior Health Data Scientist John Nolan will then do a dive into data resources and access for diabetes research.

Ewan and John will be joined by Dr Cameron Razieh, Epidemiologist and Statistician from the Diabetes Research Centre at the University of Leicester to discuss a recent BHF Data Science Centre-enabled project entitled, ‘What is the influence of multi-morbidity on risk of poorer outcomes in people with CVD and COVID-19?’

We will then open the floor to a Q&A and look forward to a lively discussion. This webinar is aimed at researchers, but all are welcome.

Joining instructions will be issued before the Webinar.

The BHF Data Science Centre is a partnership between Health Data Research UK and the British Heart Foundation that works to deliver the data and data science needed to address some of the most important challenges in heart and circulatory disease research. The Centre works with a wide range of partners including patients, public, clinicians, researchers and NHS organisations to help them carry out research using health data into the causes, prevention and treatment of all diseases of the heart and circulation.
