Developing personalised medicine

Sheffield Children's is a proud partner to the Yorkshire and Humber Genomic Medicine Centre (GMC).

The centre - which is part of the national 100,000 Genomes Project - plays a key role in the development of personalised medicine.

It involves looking at the genomes of patients with certain rare diseases and patients with certain cancers. By comparing the genomes from lots of people, the Genomic Medicine Centre will help to give a better understanding of diseases, how they develop and which treatments may provide the greatest help to future patients.

The Yorkshire and Humber centre is one of 13 across the country. It was given national approval in December 2015 following a successful bid by Sheffield Children's NHS Foundation Trust, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. It was supported by the other 11 acute trusts in the region along with the Yorkshire & Humber Academic Health Science Network and our major universities.

Visit Genomics England for more information on the national project.
