How long will the Project Baseline study last? How many people will enroll?

The Project Baseline study is an observational study that will collect, organize, and analyze broad health data from approximately 10,000 participants over the course of at least four years.

Who can participate in the Project Baseline study?

Participants must be at least 18 years old, residents of the United States, able to speak and read English or Spanish, and not severely allergic to nickel or metal jewelry.

What is the Project Baseline study trying to find out?

The study is designed to develop a well-defined reference, or “baseline,” of good health, as well as a rich data platform that may be used to better understand the transition from health to disease. Participants will join together with a team of experts from across academia, medicine, science, technology, engineering, and design to better understand how health can change over time. Participants will be asked to visit a study site up to four times yearly, test new technologies and wearable devices daily, and participate in interactive surveys and diaries by using a smartphone, computer, or call center. Data collected will include clinical, imaging, self-reported, physical, environmental, behavioral, sensor, molecular, genetic, and other health-related measurements. Biospecimens collected will include blood and saliva, among others.
