The BC Generations Project will help researchers learn more about how environment, lifestyle and genes contribute to cancer and related chronic diseases. It’s part of the Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow, a national initiative to collect health information and biological samples from up to 300,000 Canadians. In the future, thousands of research studies will draw on this massive collection of high-quality, highly-secure health data.
The Project will continue for 25 years. During this time, many project participants will be healthy. Others will develop diseases, such as cancer or heart disease. This large scale “living laboratory” will allow researchers to closely examine how different factors contribute to health or disease.
We’re currently recruiting participants for the BC Generations Project. Learn more
