The 23andMe MPN Research Initiative

Over 1,500 participants revolutionizing MPN research together.

Genetics and MPN.

Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) are a group of rare blood disorders that affect blood-cell formation. There are several types of MPNs, based on the cells affected. In 2011, 23andMe launched a research initiative to study the underlying genetics of MPNs. You can read more about findings from the MPN Research Initiative below:
