The FinnGen research project involves all the same actors as drug development: universities, hospitals, biobanks and pharmaceutical companies. With this open cooperation, we hope to speed up the emergence of new innovations.

Coordinating organizations:

University of Helsinki (Institute for Molecular Medicine Finland, FIMM) is coordinating the FinnGen study. Helsinki Biobank (the Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa) coordinates the sample collection and THL acts as the data controller of the register data.
