Here’s how

There are diseases that we know about, and that affect millions of people around the world today, but that we have no cure for. The science community is working very hard to find treatments and cures and one of the most promising approaches is based on genetic research into the causes of these diseases.

For this to work, scientists need to understand the genes in our DNA that make us who we are and influence our health. There is a very simple way that you can help – by adding a sample of your genetic information to our collection. This will form part of a collection of similar samples representing the entire Maltese population.
