The Personalized Medicine Research Project (PMRP) of the Marshfield Clinic offers a population-based bio-bank with DNA, plasma and serum linked to nearly complete electronic health records that span an average of 30 years. There are currently over 20,000 participants currently enrolled. Recruitment for PMRP was primarily from geographic areas comprising the Marshfield Epidemiologic Study Area, a defined geographic region of 24 zip codes surrounding the main Marshfield Clinic campus and selected regional centers throughout central and northern Wisconsin. Vast amounts of genomic data are available for PMRP participants. All PMRP participants have been genotyped for over 50 medically relevant makers that also serve as a fingerprint. PMRP contains 70 million individual data items (including every lab test) on the cohort. Epidemiological studies of IDD conditions, investigations of genotype-phenotype correlations, studies of the association of environmental exposures and IDD conditions, and other novel research can be pursued using these extremely valuable data.
