About Us

The East of England NHS Genomic Medicine Centre (GMC) is part of a national network of 13 GMCs taking part in the 100,000 Genomes Project.

As the home of DNA, the East of England is rich in genetics-related research, teaching, innovation, and events. The East of England Genomic Medicine Centre serves as an interface between these activities and the NHS.


100,000 Genomes Project

The 100,000 Genomes Project aims to sequence (read) the DNA from thousands of patients with certain rare diseases and cancers to help with their diagnosis, treatment, and future NHS patient care.

Everyone who takes part in the project is contributing to valuable medical research into rare diseases and cancer.



We teach a suite of postgraduate or individual modules in Genomic Medicine, suitable for NHS healthcare professionals, biotech/pharmaceutical sector professionals, and those interested in a career in healthcare.

The courses provide professionally relevant teaching and learning, equipping students with the knowledge they need to integrate genomic technologies and information into their patient care.
