Evaluation of Clinical Genomics

This project aims to measure the cost-effectiveness and short-term clinical outcomes of the use of genomics in health care.

The initial focus will be on health economics but as the project progresses it will measure a broader range of outcomes such as the longer term societal cost and impact of diseases, and the benefits of tailored care for patients and their families.

Deliverables
