FinnGen study taps into a unique gene pool in search of the next breakthroughs in disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment. FinnGen will advance the potential of personalised medicine to offer patients tailored therapies that are more effective and/or have less side effects. This is possible only by analysing very large cohorts and that is why the goal is to get 500 000 Finns to participate through giving a biobank consent and sample. 

Every Finn has a possibility to give samples to a biobank. Read more about how to participate.
