The East of England NHS Genomic Medicine Centre (GMC) was originally established as one of 13 GMCs facilitating the 100,000 Genomes Project.
It served a population of 6.5 million people across the East to successfully meet the remarkable objectives of the project.

- Support for the NHS Genomic Medicine Service.
- Support for patient and public initiatives to raise awareness of genomics.
- Support for Education and training activities for health professionals across the East Midlands and East of England, in partnership with the NHS Genomics Education Programme.
