NEAR’s Project coordinator Debora Rizzuti and Database manager Alexander Darin Mattsson participated in “Optimising Multistudy Integrative Research”, a conference held at the Wellcome Genome Center, Cambridge, UK at 18-20 September. Themes ranged from approaches for multistudy analyses, to challenges and solutions related to heterogeneity, data sharing, and measurement harmonization. Researchers from several prominent programmes like IALSA, ATHLOS and IGEMS shared experiences and presented their results.
