The purpose of Project 10K is to develop methods that will predict diseases years before they break out.
Weizmann Institute of Science is one of the world's leading scientific research institutes in life and exact sciences. We are a multidisciplinary team of scientists and researchers from the Institute, combining innovations in medicine, biology and computer science. Members of the team include researchers who are responsible for innovative and breakthrough discoveries, such as gut microbial composition and its significance for personalized diseases and nutrition. Our new study uses advanced techniques to personally characterize a unique group of 10,000 people in Israel. On the basis of this characterization, we believe that in the future, methods can be developed that will improve the ability to predict various diseases on a personal level, years before they are discovered.
We will collect data on your personal health status through a series of questionnaires and medical examinations, some of which are unique to our lab. The data is processed using sophisticated artificial intelligence tools.
Sounds ambitious? For sure! That's exactly the power of Project 10K!
