Data for Science and Health Team

Using trustworthy data science to solve urgent health challenges. 

The Data for Science and Health team shapes and funds data science initiatives to advance Wellcome’s mission. Our work ranges from supporting open-source infrastructure for pandemic response, to funding tools to model climate-sensitive infectious diseases, to launching a data prize to create new tools for mental health research. 

Data and software are at the heart of modern science and health. We make sure these tools are designed, built and governed in trustworthy ways. From ensuring technologies are effectively addressing problems they’re made to solve, to consciously developing technologies for – and with – diverse populations, so they don’t work for some groups at the expense of others. Our goal is to see the trustworthy use of data and digital technologies transform how science makes discoveries and solves the urgent health challenges facing everyone.
