Research Data Support for Wellcome researchers

All Wellcome-funded researchers can receive free support from a data curation expert as part of the extended Research Data Support pilot


If you are a researcher who receives Wellcome funding, you can access support from one of our experienced data curation experts at no cost to you. Our research data curators will assess your scientific manuscript or publication and ensure the associated data is findable, accessible and reusable. We will also provide expert curation on data files you submit, saving you time and money organising your research data. You can now submit and store files up to 500GB in size.

How can I use Research Data Support?

You can submit a manuscript for assessment, a dataset for curation, or both. One of our data curation experts will then help you deposit your data in the most suitable location, create a detailed metadata record and a data availability statement, as well as offering advice on best practice.
