FinnGen brings together the nation-wide network of Finnish biobanks.

Every Finn can be a part of the FinnGen study by giving a biobank consent.

Samples available

combined genotype and health registry data

Samples from biobanks

The FinnGen study will utilise samples collected by a nationwide network of Finnish biobanks. The study is based on combining genome information with digital health care data from national health registries.

Take part

Samples are needed from all over Finland in the thousands, because solutions in the field of personalized healthcare can be found only by looking at large masses. Every Finn can be a part of the FinnGen study by giving a biobank consent.

Everybody benefits

The genome data produced during the project will be owned by the Finnish biobanks, and remain available for researcher purposes. The medical breakthroughs that arise from the project will eventually benefit health care systems and patients globally.

Collaboration is the key

The collaborative nature of the FinnGen research project is exceptional compared to many other studies. The study involves all the same actors as drug development. With this open cooperation, we hope to speed up the emergence of new innovations.
