“Evidation and Our Future Health believe that deeply understanding individuals' everyday health experiences can accelerate discoveries that will transform health," said Christine Lemke, Co-founder and CEO of Evidation. "Together, with the participation of millions of volunteers across the UK, we will enable research that can advance more inclusive and effective ways to prevent, detect, and treat disease."
