One-to-one collaborations

In May 2017, in collaboration with 23andMe Inc, we conducted a joint study across 20,000 US participants to develop a better understand genetic influences on pain.

One of the largest of its kind to combine data on genetics and responses to pain, the study will ask eligible genotyped customers to provide information about their experience with pain via online surveys. Participants will also be asked to self-administer the Cold Pressor Test to determine pain tolerance. The combined data set of survey answers and genetic information will provide invaluable insights into the different individual perceptions of pain, the different pathways involved, and how best to manage it with more targeted treatments.
