Regional centers

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.
