Learn about the research that goes into Gene Matrix

The future of medicine. Powered by you.

There are certain diseases that matter to you personally. We now have a way for you to participate in clinical trials and help assess new treatments for these diseases that might impact you or a loved one.

We collaborate with pharmaceutical companies to bring you opportunities to participate in clinical trials that evaluate treatments for diseases you care about. You get to decide whether you’d like to participate, and are welcome to opt out whenever you want.

We do not share any of your data with our collaborators without your explicit permission.

Becoming part of something bigger.

Our genetic research gives everyday people the opportunity to make a difference by participating in a new kind of research —online, from anywhere.

Once participants answer online survey questions, researchers link their genetic data to study topics from ancestry, to traits, to disease. These contributions help drive scientific discoveries.

The choice to opt into or out of research is always up to the participant.

Accelerating research. Making an impact.

On average, a customer who chooses to opt into research contributes to over 230 studies on topics that range from Parkinson’s disease to lupus to asthma and more.

With the help of our 23andMe community we believe we can accelerate research and make an impact with our genetic data.

Bringing experts together.

We have received four grants from the U.S. National Institutes of Health to fund our research and have identified hundreds of new genetic associations. We regularly publish our research in leading, peer-reviewed scientific journals.

We collaborate with some of the best and brightest talent in the world of genetics research.
