“Baseline Study” Town Hall meeting scheduled for March 20
Baseline Study program leadership from Stanford will host a Town Hall meeting on Friday, March 20, from 1:30-3:30PM in the Clark Center Auditorium on the Stanford campus.
The Baseline Study is a clinical research collaboration between Google Life Sciences, Stanford School of Medicine and Duke University School of Medicine to develop an integrated understanding of human health and the transition to disease. The study will characterize human systems biology by measuring multiple systems simultaneously and longitudinally using a series of clinical, bodily fluid biomarkers, imaging, psychosocial, behavioral, socioeconomic, geospatial, physiometric, and molecular tools. The study will enroll up to 10,000 participants representative of the US population, stratified by conventional risk factors or presence of cardiovascular disease or cancer.
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. In doing so, it will over many years create a biomedical information structure that will enable scientists, clinicians, and policy makers to work with data scientists to account for the complex interplay of biological, medical, and social systems.
During the Town Hall, details of the study design and important benefits to the Stanford medical community will be discussed in an interactive format with the following Stanford program leadership:
- Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, MD, PhD – Stanford PI, Imaging Lead
- Kenneth Mahaffey, MD – Stanford Co-PI
- Michael Snyder, PhD – Genetics Lead
- George Sledge, Jr., MD – Oncology Lead
- David Maron, MD – Cardiology Lead
- Rebecca McCue – Clinical Operations Program Management
- Susan Spielman – Contracts and Budget Development
- Rajan Munshi, PhD, MSIS – Scientific Program Management
