CLOSER seminar series: Introducing longitudinal population studies 

This webinar series aims to showcase a number of social science focused longitudinal population studies to biomedical science researchers who may be otherwise unfamiliar with the study data, what it can offer, and data access arrangements. 

The series is designed to introduce researchers to new studies that could be of use to them in their longitudinal research and investigations.

Each hour-long webinar in the series will feature at least two study introductions covering a study overview, the biomedical data collection, data access arrangements and exemplar research case studies. 

This event will be particularly useful for those interested in longitudinal population studies and biomedical research.
