MEDMI website launches

Posted on 29th March 2016

The MEDMI project has launched a new website to showcase its work.

The Medical and Environmental Data Mash-up Infrastructure project, or MEDMI for short, has brought together leading organisations in climate, weather, environment and health to explore how big data might be used in health research.

The new site is available at www.data-mashup.org.uk and provides comprehensive details on the project and its outputs.

Funded by the UK Medical Research Council and the Natural Environment Research Council, the project has created complex analysis tools using data from the Met Office and Public Health England.

It is hoped this proof-of-concept platform will serve as a common resource for public health researchers to assess links between meteorological, environmental and epidemiological factors in the UK.
