The METADAC Committee oversees applications for bio-data and samples from five major longitudinal studies: ELSA, Understanding Society and the CLS birth cohorts 1958, 1970 and Millennium, Natsal and IMAGINE ID. METADAC also has a wider remit to review current issues affecting data access and promote good practice and effective policies.
The Committee secretariat is Dr Stephanie Roberts, of the Health, Data and Society Group at the University of Newcastle.
Membership of the Committee includes social scientists and clinical scientists with particular knowledge of data access in longitudinal studies, legal expertise in the same field, and lay members with an expert perspective as participants in other similar studies. Also present in teleconferences and meetings are representatives from each of METADAC’s studies, technical experts on the data, and METADAC’s researchers and funders.
Technical Review Team
The technical review team comprise relevant researchers, data managers and lab managers.
Observers, who contribute to discussions of applications and policy, include representatives from the longitudinal studies, from the METADAC funders and METADAC research team.
