The largest DNA ancestry service in the world Sign in Register Kit
23andMe Myeloproliferative Neoplasms Research Initiative

Over 1,000 People Revolutionizing MPN Research Together.

There is strength in numbers.

We are excited to announce that we have reopened enrollment for this project.


  • Diagnosed with an MPN* by a qualified physician
  • Access to the internet
  • Willing to provide a saliva sample and complete online surveys about your diagnosis, symptoms and treatments

*Eligible MPNs include: essential thrombocythemia (ET), polycythemia vera (PV), myelofibrosis (MF or PMF), Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), systemic mastocytosis (SM), and hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES)

How you Benefit

  • Lifetime access to 23andMe's Personal Genome ServiceĀ® at no cost
  • Learn about your ancestry and access your raw genetic data
  • Help advance medical research

Participation in the 23andMe MPN Research Initiative includes a kit and access to the 23andMe Personal Genome ServiceĀ® at no cost.

  • Provide a saliva sample for genetic analysis, then complete online surveys about your MPN experience and your responses to treatment.
  • Share your knowledge and learn from others who, like you, know what it is like to live with an MPN. Ask questions, make connections, form a community.
MPN research participants will have access to:


Trace the roots and branches of your family tree. Learn more about your maternal and paternal lineage while you connect with living relatives using our Relative Finder feature.


23andWe Genetic Research

23andWe surveys ask about your general health, medication use, as well as other physical characteristics and conditions. Your answers provide valuable scientific data to help advance genetic research with the goal of making personalized health care a reality.


Sharing and Community

Our MPN forum provides you with an opportunity to ask questions and make connections. You can share your genetic information with other patients as well as with friends and family members who have been genotyped by 23andMe.

“The research with 23andMe's new MPN Community allows patients to take direct action and help push along study of these diseases. We know that there are genetic associations with MPNs, but there still is much we don't know. 23andMe's new MPN Community could help accelerate the search for answers.”
