As part of this innovative consortium, we are currently leveraging our expertise in electronic medical records, genomics, and biomarker development to develop and validate novel biomarkers to better stratify and predict disease progression. Learn more about the consortium
We aim to identify the genes that underlie the differences in disease burden between populations. We will use data from the BioMe™ Biobank and focus on cardiometabolic diseases, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease, obesity, and blood lipids, among others.
