• PhenX, led by RTI International and funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) with co-funding by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), is helping to integrate genetics and epidemiologic research.

  • The PhenX Toolkit includes nearly 900 measurement protocols addressing 29 research domains and providing additional depth in specific research domains.

  • PhenX uses a consensus process and considers input from the scientific community on proposed measures. For each research domain, up to 15 measures are selected for inclusion in the Toolkit.

  • The PhenX Toolkit provides well-established, high-quality, low-burden measurement protocols intended for use in biomedical, epidemiological, clinical, translational, and genomic research.

  • Widespread adoption of PhenX measurement protocols will greatly facilitate cross-study comparisons and analyses.
