Veterans Genomic Cohort Nearing 1 Million

JAMA. 2019;321(24):2395. doi:10.1001/jama.2019.8395

The Million Veteran Program, a voluntary research initiative studying how genes affect veterans’ health, recently enrolled its 750 000th participant.

The program, which began enrolling veterans in 2011, has grown into one of the largest research cohorts of its kind in the world, and it has the greatest representation of minorities of any US genomic cohort, according to the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), which runs the program.
