Closure of the Data and Tissues Tool Kit

We plan to retire the Data and Tissues Toolkit by the end of May 2018.

You will find up to date information about data and tissues on the MRC Regulatory Support Centre’s webpages: Supporting research using health data and Use of human samples in medical research.

Using information about people in health research provides guidance on the common law duty of confidence and data protection (it will be updated to reflect GDPR).  For further information on the research aspects of GDPR, please see the HRA briefing notes.
