Baseline Study Town Hall Meeting

The School of Medicine hosted a Town Hall meeting on March 20, 2015 to share and discuss an exciting research endeavor called the “Baseline Study”. Baseline is a clinical research collaboration between Google Life Sciences, Stanford University School of Medicine, and Duke University School of Medicine to develop an integrated understanding of human health and the transition to disease. The overall goal of the Baseline Study is to develop a comprehensive understanding of health and disease state transitions for more focused preventive measures, timely and targeted preemptive interventions, and a better development of new therapeutics and diagnostics.
