We have three types of studies:
Complex Medical Conditions
Our complex Disease studies focuses on specific medical conditions (details listed below by condition). For these disease-specific studies, eligible participants who would like to participate are enrolled in the research directly through their clinicians at the hospital site where they are treated.
Currently, our complex disease studies are examining disease areas where there is an indication of a genetic or inherited link to the condition and where there is currently an unmet need for greater discovery. Some of the disease areas that serve as the focus of our studies include Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes and Asthma and COPD. Please see below for the full list of GMI’s genomics research studies in complex diseases.
Our Rare Disease study focuses on children with undiagnosed disorders. For this study, parents with children registered with Childrens Health Ireland at Temple Street, who have an undiagnosed disorder and who would like to enrol their child in our study may do so through their child’s clinician at the hospital site where they are treated.
Our GenoFit study, for general participants, invites healthy individuals to participate so that we can examine the genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that impact fitness and health. This study is conducted in partnership with the University College Dublin Institute for Sport and Health. Those who participate in this study can go to one of our two GenoFit Research Clinic locations; one on the UCD campus and the other on Pearse street. If you would like to learn more about this study or use our online booking system to enrol in the study, you can find details at www.genofit.ie. This study is open to anyone 18 or older and participants receive results of a mini fitness test at the conclusion of their free appointment.
