NHGRI's Genomic Medicine Portfolio

On June 8-9, 2015, the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) sponsored its eighth Genomic Medicine meeting - Genomic Medicine Meeting VIII: NHGRI's Genomic Medicine Portfolio - at the Hilton Washington D.C./Rockville Hotel & Executive Meeting Center in Rockville, Md.

The meeting convened leadership from NHGRI's genomic medicine programs and representatives from other NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) and external groups to:

  • Review NHGRI's ongoing genomic medicine portfolio and identify gaps and opportunities for collaborations among these programs.
  • Identify related programs of other NIH ICs or other funders and opportunities for collaborations with NHGRI programs.
  • Identify research needs in genomic medicine for NHGRI and partner agencies to pursue.
  • Enhance approaches to capturing and disseminating best practices for genomic medicine.
  • Examine potential methods for assessing impact of programs.
