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 needed by 2023: 500 000
FinnGen study will deepen our understanding about the origins of diseases and their treatment.
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.
The research project is based on matching genome information with digital health care data from national registries. All breakthroughs that arise from the project will eventually benefit health care systems and patients both locally and globally. Co-operation will speed up new innovations and development.
