The aim of the U01 project, The Comparability and Reproducibility of Telomere Length Measurements for Population-based Studies, is to improve methodological understandings by investigating how different tissues and processing techniques contribute to variation in determined telomere length from birth to old age. This project will fill critical gaps in the field by testing salient methodological aspects to help reveal optimal tissue cells for population-based research, clarify technical laboratory procedures, enable comparison between measurement methods, as well as advance a set of guidelines for measuring telomere length.
