d help inform future genetic discoveries. "There are tremendous opportunities for our members and for future research by integrating the 23andMe and the CureTogether platforms and phenotypic data," explained CureTogether Co-Founder Daniel Reda, who joins 23andMe as senior product manager.

CureTogether was launched in 2008 initially to help people who live in daily chronic pain. Starting with three conditions, it quickly expanded as people wrote in to request that their conditions be added to their ongoing study. CureTogether, like 23andMe, is supported by social web-based platforms and is committed to patient-driven research, having partnered with researchers at leading universities and research institutions including Carnegie Mellon University, Cornell University, Drexel University, MIT Media Laboratory and Stanford University.

"We encourage our CureTogether members to join us in the 23andMe community," added CureTogether Co-Founder Alexandra Carmichael who joins 23andMe as senior product manager, "to help accelerate research discoveries enabled by this unprecedented compilation of community-contributed genetic and phenotypic data."
