Science Advisory Committee

Our independent Science Advisory Committee advises the Genomics England Board on scientific aspects of the company's projects. This includes overseeing: disease inclusion criteria; Genomics England Clinical Interpretation Partnership (GeCIP) domain formation; data access request applications; and patient recruitment strategies. The Committee considers the interests of patients, the public, scientists and clinicians engaged in genomic research or genomic medicine.
