Through Open Humans, you can gather valuable data about yourself and find cool projects to share it with.
Be a part of research. We'll recognize your contributions with badges on your profile page, invite you to talk to other community members in our online forums, and periodically post new activities, study updates, and relevant interviews in our newsletters and on our blog.
You decide when to share. You have valuable data, and you'll decide when to share it. The data you provide will be private by default. You can choose which projects to share with. You can also opt to make some (or all) of your data public, so anyone can access and research it!
