Expert Advisory Group on Data Access (EAGDA)

The Expert Advisory Group on Data Access (EAGDA) was established in 2012 by the Wellcome Trust, Cancer Research UK, the Economic and Social Research Council, and the Medical Research Council and was active until 2017.

It provided strategic advice to the funders on the emerging scientific, legal and ethical issues associated with data access for human genetics research and cohort studies. The group identified best practice and encouraged harmonisation in governance and decision-making.
