Personal Genome Project

The Open Humans Foundation helps support the Global Network of Personal Genome Projects. These studies are dedicated to using an ethical "open consent" format to create public resources of genome data, health information, and cell lines.

GET Conference

Since 2010, we've also organized the GET Conference, an annual gathering that brings together leading thinkers to discuss how we measure and understand people and their traits. Recent years have also featured GET Labs, where researchers bring their studies to recruit and work with participants, and the GETy Awards, honoring excellence in participant-centered research.
