Being involved 

 

There are lots of ways that you are already contributing to UK Biobank to advance health research and many ways you can stay involved. The key is to ensure that the contact details we have for you are accurate and up-to-date. Providing us with your email address (if you have one) is a great way to stay in touch and helps us keep our costs down. You can check and update your contact details through the participant website (you will need your nine-digit participant number found on all our communication with you).

Participant events

We host events every year for you to find out more about the work of UK Biobank. Events offer you the chance to meet some of the scientists using our data and to ask questions.

With 500,000 participants we have to do this via invitation only, but in the future, we will run some of these events online and can invite more people along. View previous event videos on our YouTube channel.

As one of the 500,000 and one of the researchers using the data, I can say from both sides, what an excellent project.
