The Genomics England Clinical Interpretation Partnership for Health Economics (HE GeCIP)
The Genomics England 100,000 Genomes Project was set up in July 2013 with the aim of sequencing 100,000 whole genomes from NHS patients and their families. As part of this work the wider research community was encouraged to come together to form Genomics England Clinical Interpretation Partnerships (GeCIPs).
These GeCIPs contain researchers, disease experts, healthcare professionals and trainees. The aim of these partnerships is to carry out research and improve the understanding and practice of clinical genomics. Many GeCIPs are aligned to specific diseases but there are also cross-cutting GeCIPs that carry out research across the whole of the project. The Health Economics GeCIP is one of these cross-cutting GeCIPs.
