For this data special science interest group session, Gary Saunders will be walking us through his role at ELIXIR and how to enable responsible sharing of human data consented for reuse in scientific research.

Gary Saunders is the ELIXIR Human Data Coordinator. He leads the implementation of the ELIXIR-wide strategy to enable responsible sharing of human data consented for reuse in scientific research. A major focus of this role is in working with the three ELIXIR Human Data Communities (Federated Human Data, Rare Diseases, and human Copy Number Variation) in order to ensure that all data generated is compliant with the FAIR data principles, and to coordinate these efforts with the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH).

Gary joined ELIXIR from EMBL-EBI where he was the data manager for the European Variation Archive (EVA), and the Database of Genomics Variants Archive (DGVa). Gary has a PhD in Bioinformatics from the University of Glasgow, UK, and has a background in comparative genomics.
