UK Biobank Annual Meeting in London

On Monday I attended the annual meeting of the UK Biobank ( which took place in the QEII Centre in the very heart of Westminster, London. 

The meeting included an interview of some of the 0.5 million British participants contributing their data to the Biobank. These participants are screened throughout their life, enabling the Biobank to produce large amounts of amongst others epidemiological data that are provided to researchers all over the world.

Due to the superb location, I had the unique opportunity to convey my congratulations to the queen who became 90 last week… unfortunately she was not around :-).
