Million Marker is excited to announce the initiation of our partnership with the Healthy Nevada Project (HNP), a large-scale, long-term population health study run by the Renown Health Institute in Reno, Nevada. 

HNP is one of the largest community-based population health studies in the world, amassing genetic and health data from over 50,000 participants. Their data answers population gene-health questions while offering individual results back to the participants.

Million Marker will now offer environmental exposure testing to this population. This research will answer questions about environmental exposures and health, explore gene-environment-health interactions, and provide ways to improve the health of Nevadans. 

We have just initiated a pilot study with 300 individuals within the HNP population to test and streamline the Million Marker system, including the Detect & Detox Test Kit, Lifestyle Audit, and Exposure Journal in the Million Marker app. 

Once completed, this pilot study will pave the way for the most extensive environmental exposure population study ever, with opportunities for longitudinal and intervention studies and generating data for novel exposure and clinical biomarker discoveries.
