What our research offers
Access real science
Read the latest scientific studies on genetics and genetic diseases. Gain valuable insights and a better understanding of your health.
Take part in research
Choose which research programs to take part in and contribute to the development of precision medicine.
Several of our research projects pay you for your time and effort, and we will not support research aiming to monopolise your data.
Supporting World-Class Research
We work with some of the best research institutions in the world to enable research to happen faster. We share the results with you as they are released and make sure you understand exactly where you contributed.
Current Research Studies
We run regular medical studies with our partners to make the next scientific breakthrough. Have a look below at some of our current studies.
Pharmacogenomics research study by Owlstone Medical
Our genes can affect the way our bodies metabolise food and medicines. Owlstone is developing a breath-based test to better predict these differences. This study involves an in-person visit to the Owlstone labs in London. You will be paid for your time and travel.

Type 2 Diabetes
Approximately 1 in 10 people over 40 have Type 2 Diabetes. Genetics not only affects risk of Type 2 Diabetes, but may also affect the way different people respond to treatments. This study allows you to add information about your experience with Type 2 diabetes, including when you were diagnosed, the medications you are currently taking or other treatments you are pursuing, and how these have affected your health.
