The China Kadoorie Biobank investigates the main genetic and environmental causes of common chronic diseases. It is a collaboration between the University of Oxford’s Clinical Trial Service Unit & Epidemiological Studies Unit and the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences that provides a wealth of data on lifestyle, behavioural and environmental exposures, information on genetic and other blood-based factors, and the long-term follow-up for disease outcomes, thus providing a foundation for an extensive programme of research into the risk factors and causes of a wide range of chronic diseases.
