Definition of «Framingham Study»

Framingham Study: A landmark study begun in 1948 in which some 12,000 residents of the town of Framingham, Massachusetts were enrolled in a study designed to gather medical data and, more recently, DNA samples. The participants in the Framingham study came in for regular medical exams and provided the information that researchers have requested. This extraordinary longitudinal (long-term) study has yielded a vast set of data from which invaluable health information has been extracted.

The Framingham Study is formally called the Framingham Heart Study.
