To accelerate our direct impact on human health, we are partnering with established, top-of-their-field research organizations. Their clinical expertise is essential to our success. Our partner research organizations will work with local healthy and patient volunteers to establish groups of research participants. Our initial cohorts will include healthy individuals as well as patients with rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and cancer.

Together with our research partners, we will follow the immune system in these research participants over time – in some cases, up to three years or longer.
