COVID-19 data collaboration launched
The NIHR HIC Cardiovascular Theme is led by ICHT, with support from the coordinating team at Oxford. UCLH, GSTT, KCH, Imperial, and Oxford have shared data, and several other trusts are preparing to do so. The value of the collaboration has been demonstrated by the recent publication of age-stratified risk profiles for troponin testing in more than a quarter of a million people.
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the group has been leading on a data collaboration to allow cardiovascular questions to be answered in relation to COVID-19. The work has been prioritised by the NIHR/BHF Cardiovascular Partnership, connecting the cross-BRC collaboration to the network of BHF Centres and Accelerators.
