[Correspondence] A step forward for data protection and biomedical research

To update previous correspondence to this journal,1 we are pleased to report that, in large part through the efforts of the biomedical research community, a European General Data Protection Regulation that is favourable for research was agreed by Member States and Parliament in December, 2015.2 Although the Regulation will probably not apply until mid-2018, now is an appropriate time to highlight the implications for biomedical research.
