thank you

We would like to extend a huge thank you to the UK Biobank for creating such a rich and unprecedented resource and, furthermore, for making it publicly available to the community. We received continuous administrative support from the UK Biobank Research Access Administration team, in particular from Tobietta Rhyman who helped make this process as smooth as possible.
