Alphabet’s Verily Unit Launches Study to Track Health Data
U.S. News & World Report

Verily, Alphabet Inc’s life sciences business, said it was launching a four-year study with about 10,000 participants to understand how people transition from being healthy to becoming sick, and to identify additional risk factors for diseases.

Verily is partnering with Duke University and Stanford Medicine in the United States to enroll participants from varying backgrounds at sites in California and North Carolina within the next few months.

The study is the first initiative of Project Baseline, a broader effort to develop a reference, or a “baseline”, for what “health” refers to.
