Image from

The Corona pandemic has shown us just how important sharing access to research as well as clinical data is. Fittingly, the second FORUM Science & Health of BioM discussed digital medicine and whether Germany is a “data treasure” or “data desert”. GHGA co-spokesperson Prof. Dr. Juliane Winkelmann joined the panel and positioned GHGA centrally in the discussion, explaining why data sharing according to the FAIR-principle is key in genomic research. The one hour long discussion around data protection, fears surrounding the topic, and who should be able to gain access to patient data can be viewed here (German only).
