Why take part?
You are a really important part of this major study. The information you have provided has pushed forward our understanding of issues from loneliness to the effects of drug use, to how our genes are linked to asthma. The results have been featured in the likes of BBC News, the Wall Street Journal and the London Evening Standard. Without your help, none of the research could have happened and we hope that we can continue to count on your support.
