‘Demystifying Disease, Democratizing Health Care’

In the Feb. 26, 2014, issue of Science Translational Medicine, Dr. Lee Hood and Dr. Nathan Price, of Institute for Systems Biology, deliver an editorial stating the vision of the 100K Wellness Project. The project will track health-related data types for 100K individuals longitudinally over the course of 20-30 or more years.

"Unsustainable cost increases threaten the global health care system, and further progress is stymied more by societal than technological factors. Only by engaging health care consumers (that is, patients) as pioneers who provide both health-related data and insights into pathophysiology can we meet these societal challenges and thus accelerate the pace of biomedical innovation. "
