If you have already registered with UK Biobank, you can apply to access the database via the Access Management System (AMS). To complete an application form you will need the following information:

  • A summary of the research you intend to conduct.
  • The UK Biobank data-fields you require.
  • A description of any new data or variables your research will generate.

Step 1: Complete the application form in the UK Biobank online Access Management System (AMS) and generate a basket of data-fields.

Step 2: Add researchers who will access UK Biobank data to the application as collaborators.

Step 3: Add contact information for a signatory who is authorised to sign the material transfer agreement (MTA) on behalf of your institute. This must be someone other than the PI/Lead Collaborator for each institute.

Step 4: The UK Biobank team will review your application and contact you via a message in the AMS with any feedback.

Step 5: On approval of your application, an access fee request will be raised, and the MTA will be sent to you and your authorised signatory.

Step 6: Following payment of the access fee and return of signed MTA, the Access team will inform you when your data have been released and are available to access.
