UK Biobank and new Our Future Health project

Post by Gfamily » Thu Oct 27, 2022 1:53 pm

An interesting email from UK Biobank today
Our Future Health does not know that you are already a participant in UK Biobank, so you may receive a letter from the Our Future Health team asking you to join the project. In order that the evidence generated in UK Biobank can be tested independently in Our Future Health, it would be scientifically better for people not to take part in both studies (although you may participate in both if you wish).
I wonder whether it would be better to have UK Biobank participants in both sample groups, but to have a UK Biobank marker so that the data could be assessed on an inclusive/exclusive basis.
My avatar was a scientific result that was later found to be 'mistaken' - I rarely claim to be 100% correct
ETA 5/8/20: I've been advised that the result was correct, it was the initial interpretation that needed to be withdrawn
Meta? I'd say so!
