Nightingale Health Plc (“Nightingale Health”), a pioneer in health risk detection and preventative health, has entered into an agreement in which Mass General Brigham orders analysis services for blood samples from Nightingale Health.
Mass General Brigham’s institutions are known for their research-infused care, and the agreement will make critical biomarker data available to researchers as they work to bring scientific findings to the healthcare setting in an effort to improve patient outcomes.
“The Mass General Brigham Biobank is a research resource at Mass General Brigham that has provided hundreds of researchers throughout our system with samples and genomic information,” said Elizabeth Karlson, MD, principal investigator of the Mass General Brigham Biobank. “The addition of these biomarker data will further support many teams that are investigating critical disease areas.”
“We are privileged to be working with Mass General Brigham and for our biomarker data to fuel research that can be translated to a clinical setting to help improve patient outcomes and transform care. Given the many publications using our data from the UK Biobank, we're extremely hopeful that Mass General Brigham scientists can make significant discoveries using the 250 Nightingale Biomarkers linked to various health aspects such as cardiometabolic disease, kidney and liver function, and immunity,” said Jeffrey Barrett, Chief Scientific Officer and Director of Research Business of Nightingale Health.
