SGP in global genomics initiative with AstraZeneca

"I am delighted that AstraZeneca will be working in collaboration with NHS Scotland and Scottish Universities in partnership with the Stratified Medicine Scotland Innovation Centre to create a ground-breaking initiative in genomic medicine and informatics. This announcement is testament to the strength of our clinical, health informatics and genomics research base."

The Scottish Genomes Partnership is part of a new collaboration in genomic medicine in which Scotland is joining AstraZeneca's global genomics initiative through the Stratified Medicine Scotland Innovation Centre. This collaboration builds specific links with SGP's cancer genomics programme. This is further evidence of the strong links in Scotland between NHS Scotland, Scottish Universities and industry partners, and demonstrates Scotland's ability to attract major industry projects.
