FinnGen study, launched in 2017, is based on a public-private partnership between Finnish universities, biobanks, hospital districts, and several international pharmaceutical companies, to drive research, implementation, and economic development in the field of personalized medicine. The research project is based on combining genome information with digital health care data from national registries. FinnGen will boost the activities of Finnish biobanks by speeding up sample collection and enabling enrichment of samples with genomic data. The aim is to get up to 500 000 Finnish individuals to participate in the study.
