Members of our Research Team will be available at our booth (#1248) to answer any questions you may have about our research initiatives and how to collaborate with 23andMe. You can also stop by our Career Fair booth (#1239) to learn more about what it’s like working at 23andMe. Stop by and say hello!


We’ll also be giving away free copies of our children’s book You Share Genes with Me while supplies last.

Call for Collaborations

23andMe endeavors to advance biomedical science through genetic research and frequently collaborates with external academic researchers.

  • Our Research Innovation Collaborations Program invites academic researchers to submit proposals and work with 23andMe to study de-identified, aggregated data from the 23andMe database. We seek collaborators who will enable new discovery from our database with complementary datasets, expertise, and analytic techniques. We are particularly interested in proposals focused on topics that are of high significance for underrepresented populations, including groups with African, South/Central Asian, and Latinx ancestry.
  • We also provide access to de-identified summary statistics from published 23andMe GWAS for use in your research through a data transfer agreement.
