This page is no longer accepting registrations.
All Personal Genome Project participants welcome!
Join us for a day-long, hands-on, brains-on science fair!
The Harvard's Personal Genome Project and the Mind First Foundation, along with dozens of scientists from around the world will be working with pioneers, self-quantifiers, data-nauts, and participatory research partners (like you?) to advance science together.
All registration is donation-based; you can pay what you want (even as little as 1¢). Our community is the most important thing to us, so we don't want anyone to feel like they have to miss out. If you plan on attending the MindEx Conference on Saturday, Sept 12, be sure to register by clicking here.--and make sure you enter the PGP participant promotional code, which is available in the third party studies section of your account on personalgenomes.org.
Got Questions? See below for some FAQ answers, or email us!
Do I have to be enrolled in the Personal Genome Project in order to attend?
Yes. Many of our research partners require a process of informed consent in order to participate, so this event is only appropriate for people who've enrolled in the Personal Genome Project. Click here to learn more about PGP enrollment.
What kind of data will I be able to donate?
This year, we have research groups studying the human microbiome, the brain, the mind, and of course the genome. Pick and choose which research you'd like to contribute to. All studies are of course voluntary.
What is the PG in the Palooza?
PG means Personal Genomics; and it's what the PGP has been about since the beginning, and it's the basis for the public resource we're working together to build for scientists everywhere.
When & Where
Mind First Foundation & Harvard Personal Genome Project
The Personal Genome Project began at Harvard Medical School in 2005, and has worked to develop a public, open-access scientific resource comprised of data donated from thousands of independent volunteers.
The Mind First Foundation is committed to developing & leveraging new research tools to better understand the mind & brain, and recognizes the PGP's open-access data ecosystem as a tremendous resource for that cause.
Together, we are working to open new doors for participants to collect new data about themselves, and learn how to contribute that data to a larger cause, as well as assisting scientists from around the world in utilizing and enhancing public scientific resources.
