The South London Genomic Medicine Centre was set up to help gain a better understanding of the genetic causes of cancer and rare diseases.
We are delighted to announce the launch of a new website, www.southlondongmc.nhs.uk, for the South London NHS Genomic Medicine Centre.
The website provides up-to-date news, information and resources for patients and staff.
The South London Genomic Medicine Centre, which is hosted at Guy’s and St Thomas’, was set up to help gain a better understanding of the genetic causes of cancer and rare diseases.
It is one of 13 centres across England and is part of the Government’s 100,000 Genomes Project, which aims to sequence and analyse 100,000 genomes from people with cancer or rare diseases.
The South London Genomic Medicine Centre has four delivery partners working together including Guy’s and St Thomas, King’s College Hospital, South London and Maudsley, and St George’s University Hospitals NHS foundation trusts.
It is also supported by a number of other organisations including St George’s University, King’s College London, Macmillan Cancer Support, Genetic Alliance UK, the Health Innovation Network and Kent Surrey Sussex Academic Health Science Network.
