Research at Southern Health – The 100,000 Genomes Project

The Southern Health Research and Development Department is pleased to announce that the Trust has been selected as a Local Delivery Partner for the 100,000 Genomes Project.

Delivered by Genomics England, the project aims to sequence 100,000 genomes from around 70,000 people and is currently the largest national sequencing project of its kind in the world. Participants are NHS patients with a rare disease (or cancer) and their families.

Southern Health’s involvement is primarily identifying and recruiting potential patients and their families to the rare disease arm of the project.

The 100,000 Genomes Project provides is potentially ground-breaking for patients with a rare disease and their families. Some patients may get a diagnosis for the first time or discover what treatment might work best for them; transforming their lives and the care the NHS can provide.
