Our mission is to solve the many challenges of global obesity — the largest health crisis of our time. International Weight Control Registry (IWCR) will be one of the biggest, most comprehensive prospective weight control research projects ever attempted, opening new doorways between the laboratory and the globe. Real people providing real data will power new science, new strategies, and new solutions.
Recognizing that weight science has been too narrow, we’ve created this moonshot project to be more inclusive and explore more broadly, deeply, and comprehensively than ever before.
By flipping the usual scientific process on its head, we are building a true citizen-science partnership that adds people-driven discovery to data-driven science.
This transformational initiative will help many people across the globe achieve their weight control goals. We invite everyone interested in weight loss to join and help transform weight management science.
