About Us

Learn about the Viking Genes studies, what we do and how we conduct our research.

Viking Genes is a project including four studies: Viking III, Viking II, Viking Health Study - Shetland and the Orkney Complex Disease Study. Read all about them here.

The involvement and engagement of our volunteers is vital to Viking Genes. Read about some of our engagement activities and what our volunteers have to say.

Collaborating with other research studies and organisations is vital to improving our understanding of health. Find out about some of the groups we've worked with here.

Behind the scenes we work hard to make your contribution available for research. Here's a short description of how each of us contributes to the VIKING Genes team at the University of Edinburgh.
