As detailed in its 2011 Strategic Plan, NHGRI has been pursuing a number of activities in genomic medicine implementation. Links to NHGRI's current initiatives are listed below:
The Inter-Society Coordinating Committee is a group of representatives from medical professional societies and NIH Institutes and Centers formed to enhance the practice of genomic medicine through sharing of educational approaches and joint identification of educational needs.
NHGRI held a series of Genomic Medicine meetings gathering genomics researchers, clinicians, and other experts from over U.S. institutions involved with the implementation of genomic medicine programs. The goal of these meetings includes identifying research gaps and opportunities; sharing approaches to genomic medicine implementation, and facilitating development of an active research community and possible collaborative projects.
