At the forefront of medical breakthroughs
Research with potential to transform healthcare and to benefit the Irish and global population
GMI’s mission is to build a high-quality genomic database which will include data from approximately 10% of the Irish population including patients with various disease conditions and participants from the general population.
We are using multiple, advanced, genomic techniques to generate this data including:
This information, linked to comprehensive phenotype data, will help in the development of new diagnostic techniques and in understanding cell and system biology with the aim to discover better disease treatments. Our highly-skilled dedicated team of scientists work in multi-disciplinary groups, focusing on clinical research and analysis, laboratory sciences and bioinformatics. Together with our partners and volunteers, GMI is putting Ireland at the forefront of genomic research.
