Our Mission
To create a global network for translational research that will utilize large cohorts to enhance the understanding of the biological and genetic basis of disease and improve clinical care and population health.

"The IHCC could significantly benefit individual cohorts by giving them a stronger voice and power. There is strength in numbers, and together, we can advance science."

2018 International Cohort Summit

The first International Cohorts Summit was held in March 2018 at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. Leaders of large-scale longitudinal cohorts worldwide shared best practices, discussed data sharing, explored standards, discussed common challenges, and explored potential collaborative sequencing and other ‘omic strategies. Four teams were created to further develop the plans for IHCC 2019 and beyond
