Amish Longevity Study (LS)
Principal Investigators: Dr. Alan Shuldiner & Dr. John Sorkin
The goal of this study is to identify genes that allow for a long and healthy life and to understand what these genes do. In the current phase of the study we are determining whether any gene variants that we discover are related to the lifespan of study participants or to their health status. Many thanks to the 383 volunteers who have participated in the Amish Family Longevity Study.
