Lifelines for researchers
To benefit research on healthy ageing
Our aim is to enable research to better prevent, predict, diagnose and treat diseases. This is why we generate large amounts of data for the purpose of research on complex interactions between the environmental, phenotypic and genomic factors involved in the development of (chronic) diseases. A unique feature is the possibility for researchers to collect additional data or biomaterials by recalling participants and to analyse these in combination with general Lifelines data and samples.
