Project Baseline study to launch today

A massive enterprise to map the fundamental aspects of human health launches today. The Project Baseline study, which aspires to enroll 10,000 volunteers over the next few years, is a joint effort of Stanford Medicine, Duke University School of Medicine, and Verily Life Sciences, LLC.

The Verily website portal for the long-planned project launches today. Actual enrollments at Stanford Medicine and Duke will begin within the next few months.

Stanford and Duke will enroll thousands of volunteers to participate in an initial four-year study and collect the massive amounts of data, which will be hosted on the Google Cloud Platform.

Participants of any health status can enroll, take surveys and undergo an annual health evaluation. Volunteers have the option to receive information about different aspects of their health among other benefits.

For more information about Project Baseline, see today’s Verily news release and the Project Baseline web portal.
