Project Baseline Study Welcomes First Stanford Participant
Stanford formally welcomed its first Project Baseline study participant in June. The study – a massive enterprise to map the fundamental aspects of human health – is a joint effort of Stanford Medicine, Duke University School of Medicine, and Verily Life Sciences.
The Stanford School of Medicine captured the milestone in a recent article:
“So after the blood draw, I’ll offer them juice?”
It was the final meeting of the group that was launching the Project Baseline study — a massive enterprise whose goal is to map the many factors that influence human health. The project — a joint effort of Stanford Medicine, Duke University School of Medicine, Verily and Google — plans to enroll some 10,000 participants over the next few years.
On Monday afternoon, a team of researchers crowded around a conference table at Stanford, putting the finishing touches on plans for inducting and welcoming the very first participant. The next morning, a single person would formally enter the study and begin a two-day round of exams. The results would establish a baseline of health for that participant for a multi-year study. And more participants would soon follow.
