TOPS Genome Registry

Test Tubes

The TOPS Genome Registry project builds on TOPS’ 50+ year commitment to support research that forwards the understanding and treatment of obesity.

TOPS and Obesity Research

In 1966, TOPS contributed $250,000 ($1.66 million in today’s dollars) to begin the Obesity and Metabolic Research Program at the Medical College of Wisconsin. TOPS had added another research partnership, with the Texas Biomedical Research Institute at the TOPS Nutrition and Obesity Research Center, established in June 2015 to study the causes, health risks and treatment of obesity through genetic research.
