We are looking for people aged 40-70
First, you must sign up. As part of the registration, we will ask you a few simple questions to make sure you fit the criteria for participating in Project 10K.
We will then ask you to fill out a questionnaire that addresses your past and present medical conditions and ensure that you have up-to-date routine blood tests from your physician (we will provide you with the list of tests required for research).
Once you have sent us the blood test results, we will invite you to our laboratory at the Weizmann Institute of Science to have advanced tests performed by our trained staff. The visit to the Institute will take about two hours and will include a blood test, cheek sampling for genetic characterization and body measurements such as fat percentage, you will also receive a take-home stool-collection kit for characterization of the gut microbial population. We will also connect you to a sensor, which will measure your blood sugar levels for two weeks, and give you an app that will allow you to easily record your meals during this time. The study will last 10 years during which time you will be invited for further examinations at the Weizmann Institute of Science.
