Sweden’s ambitious national collaboration for genomic medicine
Our strategic mission is to foster collaboration between healthcare providers, academia, patient organizations and industry and realize precision medicine by effectively utilizing the rapidly advancing sequencing technologies to provide the highest standards of genomic testing in routine clinical care throughout Sweden.
A close collaboration between healthcare and academia is central in introducing new forms of diagnostics as the basis for an individualized choice of treatment.
Patients & next of kin
Participation and knowledge from patients and next of kin representatives is crucial for GMS to be able to introduce precision medicine in health care based on the individual’s needs.
Through an active collaboration with industry, GMS will develop and provide tomorrow´s solutions for the diagnostics and treatment of various diseases.
GMS forms a strong basis for researchers to better understand why disease arises and how new forms of treatment can be developed.
Seven regional centers are the GMS engine
GMS is comprised of seven regional Genomic Medicine Centers (GMC). These joint centers act as the primary point of contact for sequencing patient samples within healthcare, thereby creating an integrated platform for both healthcare delivery and advanced medical research. Each GMC is a collaboration between a region with university hospital care, a university with a faculty of medicine, and SciLifeLab.
