Gut reaction

Eastern AHSN is a key partner in Gut Reaction, the Health Data Research Hub for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) supported by HDRUK which is led by the NIHR BioResource. The hub will integrate data from multiple sources and create a secure research resource that allows approved researchers to access data, whilst protecting the privacy of individuals.

Gut Reaction aims to build on the high-quality health data in the NIHR IBD BioResource by combining it with ‘real-world’ data from participating NHS hospitals and the IBD Registry. This will allow researchers to use the pooled data to support important research into IBD.
