Genome Sequencing Program Coordinating Center (GSPCC)


The GSP Coordinating Center (GSPCC) will help NHGRI coordinate across all GSP activities - the Centers for Common Disease Genomics (CCDG), the Centers for Mendelian Genomics (CMG), and any other program components, and facilitate cross-study activities to increase the integration and efficiency of the program as a whole.

GSP Coordination Center Roles

In carrying out its role, the GSPCC is expected to work collaboratively with GSP investigators; outside investigators collaborating with the GSP; investigators in other relevant NHGRI programs as scientific opportunities arise; and NHGRI staff to facilitate a comprehensive program of research to promote discovery of disease-related variants and elucidation of their potential causal role.

  • First, the GSPCC will provide leadership for specified cross-program scientific objectives.
  • Second, the GSPCC will support administrative, logistical and certain outreach functions for the GSP.
