TransPop: for the community

The Translational Population Health Research Group (TransPop) in Kannapolis, part of the Duke Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI), was founded to develop a groundbreaking community registry and biorepository called the MURDOCK Study. Today, the MURDOCK Study has more than 12,000 participants, and the Kannapolis TransPop group now manages a wide variety of research projects focusing on the exploration and discovery and validation of biomarkers that will inform a deeper understanding of health and disease.

What Is Project Blue?

The goal of the MURDOCK Study is to learn how our community’s health changes over time, so following up each year is incredibly important. Now that you’re enrolled in the study, watch for your Project Blue email and blue mailing packet each year so you can be a part of the follow up phase of MURDOCK, Project Blue. Please take a few moments to complete your annual follow-up form so we can learn how your health has changed (or not) throughout the year. Thank you for contributing to this valuable research!
