…Can I take part?
“The East of England Genomic Medicine Centre will offer patients new insights into the “barcoding” of their cancer which will make possible treatments that are personalised by them”.
Dr James Brenton, cancer lead for the East of England Genomics Medicine Centre
If you have a certain type of cancer you can take part in the 100,000 Genomes Project if you have recently been diagnosed with one of the cancers listed below. Genomics England regularly updates this list, so if your cancer isn’t on the list it may be in the future. You can click on the image above to take to a youtube video that explains cancer Genomics.
Currently we are recruiting patients with the following types of cancer:
- Upper GastroIntestinal (GI)
- Haematological malignancies
Your hospital doctor and NHS clinical care team will be happy to talk through the process with you. For an overview of what happens when patients join the project, click here (this link takes you to the Genomics England website).If you want to know how the project started just click on the link to the 100,000 Project .
