Welcome to Oxford NHS Genomic Medicine Centre

Oxford Genomic Medicine Centre (GMC) is an NHS partnership led by Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, originally established to deliver the NHS's flagship 100,000 Genomes Project.

The Centre was one of 13 GMCs created by NHS England in 2015, each chosen for its track-record of providing excellence in genomic services.

Over 5,000 patients and their relatives joined the project through Oxford GMC between 2015 and 2018, and over 85,000 people nationwide.

The project is now closed to recruitment and is returning results to participants. The data generated is being used in research projects to help understand the causes and improve treatment for patients with rare inherited disease and cancer.

You can find more information about the 100,000 Genomes Project here.

The 100,000 Genomes Project has laid the foundations for a new NHS Genomic Medicine Service. Oxford GMC is continuing to help transform the way patients with rare genetic disease or cancer are diagnosed and treated by supporting the development and implementation of this service.

"Genomics is not tomorrow. It's here today. We need to welcome the genomic era and deliver the genomic dream!"

Professor Dame Sally Davies, Chief Medical Officer
