KANNAPOLIS, NC (WBTV) - A group of scientists and doctors from Duke University is at the new North Carolina Research Campus in Kannapolis.
They want to test the blood of 50,000 people who live in the area.
The $35 million project is called the MURDOCK study.
Researchers want to study the volunteers over the course of their lives to determine any health issues they may have and how to best treat them.
The first day of enrollment was Monday.
Andy Langford is the pastor of Central United Methodist Church in Concord. He was one of the first to sign up to participate in the study.
