Ethics Advisory Committee

Our independent Ethics Advisory Committee identifies, defines, examines and responds to ethical issues in the 100,000 Genomes Project. They also help to ensure the Project is delivered in the interests of the public and of participants.

They provide timely advice, guidance, review and recommendations on ethical issues, as requested by the Board.
