Participant Panel

The Participant Panel sits at the heart of Genomics England and is made up of participants from the 100,000 Genomes Project, and parents or carers of people involved in this project. It is expanding to include patients and relatives from the GenOMICC COVID-19 study and NHS patients who give consent for their whole genome sequences and associated health data to be used for research in the Genomics England National Genomic Research Library.

The Panel acts as an advisory body to the Genomics England Board, working to ensure that the health data held by Genomics England is being looked after with respect and used in the best interests of our participants.
