Project Lead, Project Baseline
New Frontiers of Science: Pushing the Limits of How Humanity Understands and Treats Disease
The Project Baseline study is an initiative to collect information from a diverse group of people and monitor how it changes over time. Then we'll compile that data into a digital platform (like Google Maps for health), develop powerful tools to search and analyze data within the platform, and grant access to qualified researchers. This unique partnership between academia, medicine, and technology equips the project to do all this with incredible depth, breadth, and quality. The possibilities are wide-ranging—from finding a cure for cancer to being able to predict and prevent heart attacks.
