Participate in our Research

At TGen, we are pioneers in precision medicine and believe that every genome tells a story. Whether eye color, laughter, freckles or smile, our genes shape who we are in so many distinct and different ways. So, too, do they play more than a passing role in how we develop and react to disease, and as important, how we react to treatment. 

To understand complex diseases, we enroll healthy and affected volunteers in TGen's research studies. This may be as simple as donating ten minutes of your time to take a memory quiz or offering a saliva sample from a family pet. In other instances, participation may be restricted to those suffering from a particular genetic condition. We invite you to participate in our current studies and forward them with those who may share your interest. Thank you in advance for helping advance our research.


Participation in our research studies is voluntary. In most instances, we need patients and healthy volunteers. Thank you for being a 'Citizen Scientist' and helping advance our work.

Arteriovenous Malformation Registry

Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are defects of the circulatory system believed to arise during embryonic or fetal development or soon after birth. We have created an international registry of AVM patients for study.

MindCrowd Memory Test

Join more than 75,000 people worldwide who have taken this free, 10-minute, online memory quiz to help us understand healthy brain function so we can better treat Alzheimer's and other disorders.

Multiple System Atrophy

Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) is a rare, rapidly progressing, degenerative brain disorder that typically occurs in mid-life. We are enrolling patients and families to identify genetic changes associated with MSA.


Small cell carcinoma of the ovary (SCCO) is an aggressive form of ovarian cancer that affects adolescent girls and young women. We seek to identify the genetic basis of the disease and develop an effective treatment for it.

Valley Fever Paws

Valley Fever, a lung disease caused by fungal spores, affects people and their dogs. TGen invites pet parents to share information about their dogs to better understand the disease through an effort called Valley Fever PAWS.
