The Genomics England Clinical Interpretation Partnership (GeCIP) brings together researchers, clinicians and trainees from academia and the NHS. Applications are now open to consortia of researchers to form domains.
GeCIP Domains are UK-led consortia of researchers, clinicians and those in training. Each domain will work on improving the clinical application and interpretation of the data in the 100,000 Genomes Project. In addition, research will be undertaken to improve our understanding of genomic medicine and its application to healthcare, to improve our understanding of disease and will lead the way to developing new diagnostics and treatments. Prof Mark Caulfield, Chief Scientist at Genomics England, said “Our vision is to create a powerful research and training programme alongside the 100,00 Genomes Project.”
This is the second round for applications, following the successful first round where over 30 domains formed. Each domain covers a different topic area. These are either a specific disease, or group of diseases, or topics which are ‘cross-cutting’ across the whole project.
To apply, please visit the GeCIP pages for more information. Closing date 5.00pm 30th October 2015. For background to the project, please see our two short films.
