Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation’s Personalized Medicine Research Project (PRMP) contains the largest population-based genetic research project in the United States. Begun in 2002, more than 20,000 adults in 19 Wisconsin zip codes participate in the project.
Scientists use the DNA database linked to Marshfield Clinic’s Cattails Software electronic medical record to study which genes cause disease or drug reactions, and how environment and genes work together to cause disease.
The Personalized Medicine Research Project is part of Marshfield Clinic’s Center for Human Genetics housed within the Laird Center for Medical Research in Marshfield, Wisconsin.
Marshfield Clinic, the largest private group medical practice in Wisconsin and one of the largest in the United States, serves patients through accessible, high quality health care, research and education at more than 50 locations. The Marshfield Clinic system also includes educational, applied science, laboratory, health insurance and hospital services.
